17 Nigerian Soldiers Killed In Boko Haram Attack On New Military Base In Borno Garunda Village

Not less than 17 Nigerian soldiers lost their lives when the dreaded Boko Haram Jihadi sect invaded a newly established military base in Garunda village, Borno state last night.

According to the AFP, the troops came under heavy attack last night when the jihadists riding trucks invaded the base and looted weapons, and military vehicles.

In the past months, the dreaded Jihadists have attacked two military base in the remote North East region.

On the 14th of July, the ISIS affiliated faction of Boko Haram attacked a military base at Jilli village in Yobe state, killing and wounding dozens of troops.

On the 26th of July, the islamists stormed another Military base on the outskirt of Maiduguri, the capital  of Borno state and unleashed terror on the troops.

The latest attack happened days after the military relocated 81 brigade troop from Jilli in Yobe state to Garunda in Borno state.

According to AFP sources, the troops were just setting up the newly established military base when the terrorists caught them off guard.

There are fears that insiders in the military are leaking classified secrets to the insurgents about the movement of the troops.

The Nigerian army is yet to respond to AFP comments on the new attack.

    With help from insiders in the Nigerian Security agencies, Boko Haram will continue to conquer.
    The security chiefs want it this way so they can use the issue of Boko Haram for their own purposes.
    Useless security chiefs are busy looting in the background.

    It is a pity that some soldiers within the same Brigade can connive to sell their colleagues to Boko Haram. It is very obvious that some bad eggs among soldiers have sold their colleagues for dollars because those politicians who sponsor them paid them in Dollars from reliable source. Ordinarily, Boko Haram are ill equipped and the Nigeria Army could have dismantle them long time ago but because of those who are fighting against the government, they equipped them and reveal to them security classified information. Now Boko Haramist have become more sophisticated. If the Boko Haram Militants can kill 17 soldiers at a go, then we are in big trouble in this Country but guess what! very soon i’m positive that the secret of those politicians behind this will be revealed.

    Urgently we need to ratify our existing law to pave a way for stiffer punishment for the traitors.
