2 soldiers died as Nigerian army raid Boko Haram camp in Borno

 According to a statement released by the Nigerian Army, troops of 7 Brigade today Friday August 21st cleared Gudumbali town, Kukawa LGA of Borno State, of Boko Haram terrorists. Two soldiers died while two others were seriously injured during the raid. Full statement after the cut...


OperationLafiyaDole. Troops of 7 Brigade have today entered and cleared Gudumbali town, Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno State. During the operation, quite a number of the

terrorists were killed their weapons and equipment were destroyed. The troops are currently doing
clearance operations in the general area. It should be recalled that the Nigerian Air Force has inflicted heavy damage on the terrorist’s camps within the general area last Monday. 


Unfortunately, two soldiers lost their lives, while two others were critically injured. The bodies of the two gallant soldiers have been evacuated, to the rear, while the other two wounded soldiers have also been evacuated and are receiving treatment at the military hospital. The unit also lost a Mowag Armoured  Personnel Carrier due to the buried landmine between old Marte and Kerenoa  junction, BornoState.

Despite this sad event, troops are not deterred as they continued their advance and pursuing the terrorists to their enclaves in Sambisa forest. Similarly, it is important to note that troops in the various formations and units in #OperationLAFIYADOLE are in high spirit and more determined to destroy the terrorists camps and enclaves.

God bless our soldiers for the sacrifices they make so we can live. We appreciate u guys. RIP to the dead. By the way, shouldn't government build some sort of monument to remember these heroic soldiers by? Just my opinion though!
