- Nigerian soldiers mounted a superior attack on Boko Haram insurgents in Borno
- A video of how the insurgents reportedly bowed to the attack by the soldiers, fled and abandoned their vehicles was published by The Cable
- The encounter reportedly happened on Sunday, January 26, on Maiduguri-Damaturu road
Following the renewed attacks carried out by the Boko Haram insurgents, troops of the Nigerian Army have upped their games as they mount superior counter-attacks.
In a recent video published by The Cable, some Nigerian soldiers were seen firing sporadically at the direction of the terrorists.
The newspaper identified the soldiers as the troops of 7 division of the Nigerian Army, adding that the attack happened in Borno state.
Legit.ng gathers that the troops with superior firepower in the attack which happened on Sunday, January, 26, overpowered the insurgents.
One of the soldiers is seen shouting as sounds of gunshot rents the air: “Fire! Fire! Kill them! Finish them!”
“See one gun truck there… Boko Haram abandoned that gun truck,” another soldier said.
“As you can see, we had victory over Boko Haram today. They abandoned their vehicle,” one of the gsoldiers added.
Recall that the chief of army staff, Tukur Buratai, described the recent attacks by the Boko Haram insurgents as the last kicks of a dying horse.
The Army boss disclosed this after the European parliament claimed there has not been progress in the fight against Boko Haram insurgents.
He consequently called on respected bodies not to make pronouncement that can affect the fight against insurgency.
Similarly, President Muhammadu Buhari has given an assurance that terrorism in the northeastern part of Nigeria will in no time become a thing of the past.
The president gave this assurance on Friday, January 24, as he received Janez Lenarcic, the European Union (EU)'s commissioner from crisis management in Abuja.
He said that just like in the Nigeria-Biafra civil war, the insurgency in the region will definitely be defeated, although it might time some time.
Also, Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina, has commented on the successes recorded in the administration of President Buhari in terms of security.
In his comparison between the government of President Buhari and that of former Nigerian leader, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan, Adesina rated security high in the former.
Adesina said that although things are not at their best in this regard, they were worse in Jonathan's administration.
