Troops foil terrorist attempt to occupy Damaturu while Mission to reclaim Baga is ongoing

Find the military press statement below
Troops are on mopping up operation around Damaturu after successfully foiling and containing the terrorists attempt to occupy parts of the town. The terrorists had launched massive attack from different directions of the town on Friday evening, but troops were promptly mobilized to repel the attack that lasted the night resulting in heavy casualty on the terrorists before the rest of them retreated. Weapons including IEDs and Rocket Propelled Grenades captured from the terrorists are being compiled while their dead as well as civilian casualties are yet to be determined.
Pursuit of the fleeing terrorists is also ongoing while the 5 soldiers who were seriously wounded in the attack are being treated in the military medical facility. Although normalcy has been restored, the town is also being reinforced with more troops. More details later.
Meanwhile the situation in Baga is still being studied to determine the appropriate action that will restore law, order and normalcy to the community after the attack mounted by hundreds of heavily armed terrorists last weekend. A total of 14 soldiers were killed in action during the attack, while over 30 who were wounded are now receiving medical attention. Most of those declared missing in action have also rejoined their unit in the ongoing reorganization for further operations.
Although several of the terrorists died in the course of the attack and efforts at repelling the assailants, the actual figure of civilian casualties is yet to be creditably determined as is being propagated in certain quarters.

The Nigerian military has not given up on Baga and other localities where terrorists activities are now prevalent. Appropriate plans, men and resources are presently being mobilized to address the situation. The Nigerian component of the Multinational Joint Task Force which retreated from its Baga Headquarters last weekend and more of the troops are regrouping for necessary debrief and briefing for subsequent missions.

It is necessary to reassure Nigerians that the Nigerian Armed Forces and security agencies are capable of flushing out the terrorists from Baga and all parts of the nation’s territory where their activities are prevalent. No portion of Nigeria’s territory has been or will be conceded to terrorists.
The use of all available resources within the armed forces will continue to be maximized to sustain the tempo of the counter terrorism campaign towards containing and eradicating terrorism in the nation’s territory. The support and understanding of all partners and neighboring countries will however continue to be utilized where available and relevant in the conduct of the mission and in line with existing agreement and understanding.

The problem isnt the capability of the khaki boys,its the politicks going on in higher places.Today we've won,but how about tomorrow? A friend of mine who's in Borno gave me a shocking revelation.Only one unit of soldiers left between maiduguri and the terrorists.The rest towns have been captured.You can imagine what will happen if this guys capture a state capital with airport? God forbid.

I commend the effort of our soldiers. It is not easy to wage a war against insurgency. However there is room for improvement in the area of intelligence gathering and surveillance. This will help the military to proactively contain and ward off attacks from the insurgents. How do the insurgents get their supply of arms and ammunition....who are their sponsors...how are they able to mobilize and strategise to launch massive offensive against our military...overrunning communities in the process. At the moment, the strategy of waiting for the insurgents to launch attacks while our military repel such attacks is not too comfortable. It should be the other way round. The military should be launching more offensive against the insurgents and not wait to repel attacks from the insurgents. Having said that, my heart goes to soldiers and officers who have lost their lives in this senseless war. May God continue to comfort and strengthen their families. It is the ultimate sacrifice. To lay down one's life for the country. Can Linda Ikeji extend kind gestures towards these fallen heroes. Financial support could be extended to the families of soldiers and officers who died in this war. They have wives and children. They have aged parents and other dependents. God bless Nigeria

Our Nigeria army have failed us! Our govt. have failed us. The Nigeria army is not a fire brigade squad, that go to put out a fire after the damage has been done. The army sld prevent the fire from happening. It's taken too long to squash this hooligans. Innocent poor civilians are dying in thousands!!!
