Boko Haram attacks Nigerian Army base, leaves soldiers killed, wounded, missing

PublishedBy: in Nigeria NewsMay 22, 2019 -


Insurgents in Nigeria’s north-east have attacked yet another military base in Borno State, killing, wounding and displacing soldiers.

The Boko Haram thugs drove yet unconfirmed number of trucks into Gubio Local Government Area at about 5:30 p.m. on May 19, PREMIUM TIMES learnt from military sources. They attacked a camp housing the Army 5 Brigade and the 159 Task Force Battalion, leaving at least one soldier killed and three others injured.

Six were still missing as of Tuesday night, two days after the attack, sources said.

But were able to repel most of the Boko Haram attackers before they could inflict maximum damage, killing at lease one of them with some guns recovered.

The Army has not issued a statement on the attack. A spokesperson, Sagir Musa, did not immediately return calls seeking comments Wednesday morning. The military contacts spoke under anonymity because the military top brass had not authorised disclosure of the attack to the media.

The attack occurred barely three days after the military acceded to the request of Gubio residents for an additional time for farmers to return home daily.

The farmers had complained that the curfew hitherto in place was obstructing their farming activities because it required them to stop working on their farm before 4:00 p.m. Several residents were reported to have been arrested because they sometimes stayed beyond the 4:00 p.m. in their farms.
