TROOPS AMBUSHED BY BOKO HARAM BLAMES THE NIGERIAN ARMY (VIDEO)
Troops of Combat Team 1, Operation KATANA JIMLAN on long-range admin patrol along Buni Yadi-Buni Gari axis was ambushed by Boko Haram Terrorists in Yobe, on 18, May 2020.
The Nigerian Soldiers in a viral video made uncomplimentary remarks about the Nigerian Army and the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai after being ambushed.
Reports indicate that the Nigerian Army encountered multiple Improvised Explosive Devices and Boko Haram Terrorists' ambush, eight kilometres ahead of Buni-Gari in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
Two soldiers were killed, and three sustained injuries as a result of the IED explosion.
As a result of the unappealing occurrence, one of the soldiers whose voice was clearly heard in the video said, "the army has sold us".
He said the Army had sold them as no adequate Safety measures were put in place to safeguard them against insurgents ambush.
The Soldiers seem frustrated as the incident was not the first of its kind.
In a statement released by the Defence Headquarters, on Wednesday, May 20, it said the soldiers involved have been identified and would undergo observation and counselling.
The Armed Forces, reiterated its stand on fighting terrorism, adding that there would not be an outburst of traumatic occurrences anymore.
