Over 10 soldiers died during the Ashaka, Gombe state terror attack-DHQ

The Defence Headquarters says over 10 soldiers lost their lives during the Boko Haram attack at Ashaka town in Gombe state on Thursday December 4th.

In a statement released yesterday, the Defence headquarters said many Boko Haram members were also killed. Find the statement as posted on their website below
Terrorists fleeing Ashaka on Thursday managed to retrieve 3 truckloads full of their dead members following the defeat & heavy casualty they suffered after a fierce battle with troops in the area. The terrorists who had come in large number with heavy equipment & convoy of over 30 vehicles & a number of motor cycles, were on a mission to take control of Ashaka town, after they had operated in Bajoga & environ in Gombe state.
Troops who got wind of their intention to overun other towns pursued the terrorists while some also laid ambush for them. The terrorists were forced to abandon the mission when the troops proved unyielding. Most of the vehicles & equipment used by the terrorists for their mission, were destroyed before they chose to flee the location. Over 10 soldiers however died in the battle while those who were wounded are being treated in military hospitals.

Whatever strategy applied by Nigeria govt to fight against this terrorist group over the decade has failed miserably. Nigeria need a forceful leader not a hugging leader. REPORTING LIVE FROM PORT NOVIA>

Does it mean that federal government of Nigeria can not investigate the manufactural of these deadly weapons of book haram.
If they know the country then ,they will know the importers .
When God wants to deal with a country he will give them a foolish ,baby ,king.
For Jonathan to be contesting again ,it means that he does not border even if the whole Nigeria perish

RIP our fallen heroes. Why does the army always allow the BH terrorist to retreat, re-group and attack again. The army should take the war to the camp of the enemy, rather than wait for them to attack first.

Boko-haram or whatever i.d they choose to operate with is not an insurmountable menace! All we need do is to identify it's origin & the solution will be staring @us right on the face. One million citizens or there about are bigger than this humiliation; but,we make the mistake of thinking it's an issue for the president alone while innocent souls die on daily basis! RIP victims of circumstances, able soldiers of the country.

these soldiers died for protecting thier country are human beings like us. they have children, mothers, fathers, etc as we have too.their families should not be left stranded, all their due right should be given to them. the issue of boko haram is escalating everyday, nigeria is loosing soldiers too, the BH are killing, kidnapping, burning houses, suciding with bumbing. where is nigeria heading too?
