Feb 22, 2015 – Nigerian Troops Chased Boko Haram Into Lake Chad, Over 100 Terrorists Drowned 6 Weeks To Election

The military claims it has chased a large number of terrorists from Borno state into Lake Chad.

According a statement released Major General Chris Olukolade, a heavy bombardment by the Airforce in Baga flushed out the terrorists in great number.

Many of the terrorists, according to the statement, died while an unknown but substantial number of them fled with various degrees of injury, in the series of encounter along the routes of advance as Nigerian troops headed for Baga.

“Not even the strategy of mining over 1500 spots with land mines on the routes leading to the town could save the terrorists from the aggressive move of advancing troops.
“All the land mines were skillfully cleared one after the other.
Eventually, the resistance of the terrorists collapsed and the land forces finally stormed the town in the early hours of Friday.

The statement stated further that apart from the five anti-aircraft guns and rifles captured from the terrorists, over 34 motorcycles and five vehicles including trucks being used for operations were destroyed in the course of the fighting as troops headed for Baga before they finally began clearing the terrorists from Baga on arrival in the town early Saturday morning.

“A comprehensive cordon and search phase of military operation has now commenced to enable troops mop up arms and ammunition and also apprehend any terrorist who might be hiding in the vicinity.
The exercise will also determine details of the casualties inflicted or incurred in the course of the operations to clear Baga and environ of terrorists.

“Similar exercise is being carried out in over 12 locations namely Gajigana, Ngaze, Ngenzai, Marte Junction, Mile 90, Yoyo, Kekeno, Kukawa, Cross Kauwa, Kangarwa, Amirari and other localities where troops have flushed out the terrorists in the operations preceding the entry to Baga.
The troops are now dominating and conducting aggressive patrols in the locations. The morale of troops remain high,” it stated.

This heavy bombardment is happening few weeks to the election.

Why can’t they do this kind of bombardment all this while? Yeye dey smell for this military.

    Although this is something tobe proud of, but the fact still remains unclear, this was not done for the past six years till weeks to election they started to take action , what about the millions that have been killed, what people that has lost there love ones, what about the newly recruits that were released from the army that were killed weeks ago. I just so confused at the moment, people who swore to protect the nation which are the soldiers are also corrupt, I can’t believe what I saw in gombe last week Saturday, a soldier running for live, then what do u expect a civilian to do? The same army said they can’t provide security during election, then of what importance are they, with the current situation it will come to a time where soldiers will be beaten on streets n been disarmed,

    No doubt they are working for a common goal, to send Jonathan back to power

    President Jonathan, the Living Dead, should be dismissed by the people and the security forces.

    We Nigerians tend to forget things or events easily. We are also quick to blame each other. We are expert in shifting blamed. The cry of killing northerners and Muslims has been forgotten. Amnesty which had became caller tune then has also been forgotten while the treat of ICC has never been heard of. One thing l am sure of: You can never please somebody who hates you no matter how you try to. He or she has one reason or the other to down play your efforts.
