At least 105 soldiers of the 157 Battalion, including their commanding officer, are feared missing after they came under intense attack from Boko Haram insurgents at Gudunbali, Borno State, on Wednesday, military sources have told PREMIUM TIMES.

According to one of our sources, the terrorists also captured a T-72 tank as well as several artillery weapons from the unit.

“Gudunbali was attacked this morning and some weapons were captured from the battalion. Two officers and 105 soldiers are still missing,” our source said.

“They captured a T-72 tank from the unit and some artillery weapons were also captured. The commanding Officer (CO) of the battalion is yet to be seen but no one has been confirmed dead yet,” the source added.

Another source however said the T-72 tank was recovered after a prolonged fight with Boko Haram insurgents. The gunner and tank commander were injured in the process, he said.

Also reportedly captured by the insurgents were eight vehicles, a truck loaded with 60,000 rounds of AA ammunition and three artillery pieces.

Similarly, soldiers of the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) stationed at Baga, Borno State also recently came under attack. The attack occurred in Geringiwa at about four kilometres to the headquarters of MNJTF, PREMIUM TIMES has also been told.

According to a source, the military has been unable to completely clear the insurgents from Baga and nearby towns due to inadequate equipment.

Our source explained that the equipment recently provided by the military hierarchy were inadequate and were not enough to go round to all units involved in the war against the insurgents.

Boko Haram carried out a series of mass killings in Baga between January 3 and January 7, 2015, after the army headquarters there was sacked by the insurgents.

Although the military later liberated the town, soldiers stationed in the area have come under constant attacks from the insurgents.

Also on Sunday, Boko Haram insurgents attacked advancing soldiers about four hours drive to Damasak, in Borno state.

When contacted by PREMIUM TIMES, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Army, Sani Usman, a colonel, directed enquiries on the matter to officials of 7 Division, Maiduguri.

But the spokesperson of the Army’s 7 Division,Tukur Gusau, also wouldn’t comment on the matter, saying the commander of the division would hold a press conference on the issue today (Thursday) and that it was not proper for him to pre-empt his commanding officer.

The attacks on the military came on the heels of the suicide attacks on Yola and Kano respectively.

After a lull of several weeks, the recent spike in attacks on military and civilian targets suggests the insurgents might have regrouped after coming under heightened attacks from the Nigerian military.

The Nigerian military has claimed series of victories over the militants in recent weeks.

On Monday, the army claimed that it captured and destroyed a factory where the group makes rockets and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs).

      I see you have lost all sense of morality and decorum. How dare you insult your Nations President. Please you make your Parent a disgrace for improper upbringing. You should rather look at issues and address them than what i see you and many Nigerians do. A people that don’t respect their Leaders and institutions is doomed as no other would love and respect more as much as they do.

      • Omooba Adekunle Orafidiya

        You are an imb*cile. It is only in Nigeria that a certificate forger and perjurer can become President owing to the gullibility of sods like you. Preach morality to criminal Buhari, not me. I stand by my post.

            This your wailing and gnasing of teeth shall continue till 2023,.By the time BOKO is finally annihilated you must be ready to hug a transformer in the front of your house or jump into Lagoon.

Nigeria since her freedom on a platter of gold from Britain, had often behaved like a spoilt child. We had no clear vision on how to move the Nation forward, right from 1960, till date because of the awoof oil revenue flowing freely from the zone occupied by my mumu brothers and sisters in the South south. This is the Nigeria which has since 1914, been under the evil control of the Fulanis-Yorubas and d Ibos-Yet inspite of their socalled educated elites being in charge of the affairs of the country-Nigeria has remained without a single progress despite the trillions of oil revenue that accrued to the Nation during the rule of the socalled TRIPOD. Buhari opened his BOKO HARAMIC mouth to SWEAR that D JIHADIST, would become a thing of the past, as soon as he is smuggled into Aso Rock by the USA-That was the thrust of his demonic campaign against Ijaw man Jonathan. 6 months after he was installed as president by the USA–it seems Jonathan had a better idea of how to win the war, than the commander of Boko haram himself—Buhari—-APC used the Sultan of Sokoto, even Dasuki, the Emir of Kano, Sanusi–Senator Shehu Sani, ElRufai-to raise the issue of human right abuses by our soldiers with the Human Right Council-at the UN and the American government-They lied to the USA that the war was still on because Jonathan was corrupt–The Yankees believed the Fulansi and D Yoruba CIA agents like Obj-So supported Drug barons like Tinubu to sack Ijaw man Jonathan-Is 6 months not enough for Buhari to equip our soldiers–?——Sadly the Service chiefs are more interested in killing the Biafran Protesters in Enugu-Port Harcourt—Aba—-than chasing the boko haram fighters who have become more daring under Buhari, d REMITA thief than Ijaw man Jonathan——separation is the only answer–not the rule of the Fulnis ati Yorubas—-again———————–

      Most of this lgbo pple lack respect for a constituted authorities even their biological parents.You will continue dreaming on biafra without its actualization.better change your thinking and be responsible.

      • Peter

        That is if Boko Haram has not over-run the whole north, plant their islamic caliphate with headquarters in Maiduguri and head for the west to establish what Afonja cowardly surrendered to Utman Dan Fodio. The Yoruba man will very readily surrender and will not have the fear to declare their Oduduwa State. While this is going on, Biafra will be fully on ground with the rest of the south fully integrated. Think about this while you gloat over the misfortune that has been brought upon you by your greedy politicians who created the Boko Haram in order to oppress Jonathan.

  • Nwa Aba {Proud Biafran}

    Nig Army is dead

  • God win ooo

    Why must they leave the barrack defenseless? We are back to square one

    • REDEEM

      What was the reason the army gave us for sending General Kuti to prison? Was it not that he was a party when boko haram struck————? The truth of the matter is that there are more Boko haram fighters among our soldiers than meets the eye-That was why—the boko haram Fulani fighters invaded the barracks————while KUTI WAS AT A PARTY–and the janjaweed service chiefs now used that as an excuse to fire him —Now is the Chief of Army staff going to be sacked because of the troops they captured?

  • burning spear

    Nigeria is just wasting time, money and human resources to fight these boko haram Fulani fighters from the West African Sub Region-Release General Kuti and restore him to his former status–period———————–We just used the poor man as an escape goat–the fall guy—for our short-comings–in the fight with boko haram————————————–Was it Kuti who led Boko haram to capture our troops’? thieves———–The entire idea by boko haram–is to ensure they economically strangle the country–Nonetheless the war can still be won if the Fulanis Emirs and Sultans declare a fatwa on their Fulani fighters who are not even Nigerians——-Only a mad dog will tell me that the boko haram insurgents are Kanuris—When Ijaw man Jonathan, was in power, the Yorubas and Fulanis portrayed the war as a fight against Ijaw man Jonathan-So described him as a weakling———now Nko? Buhari will never win this war because he has derailed——–period————-Aware he is a member of Boko haram who fought Jonathan with the aid of the Sultan of Sokoto for killing Boko haram Fulani fighters–But pretended to have moved from the ideas and ideals that the jihadist stand for, when he FOOLISHLY visited the USA—————–to only plead with d USA to HELP TRAIN Media Advisers to governors—-I laugh¨!————–That is the type of man we Nigerians have as our president-Very sad indeed—-Then as if that was not enough, Nigerians handed over their National Flag to the samne Fulanis Killing us in Boko haram via Fulani Buhari-So–Why complain now? Did we not sell out soul to boko haram–leaders like Ndume, Buhari ati Shehu Sani–El Rufai and Sanusi? In the name of one Fulani controlled Nigeria-?–Are the Fulanis not in control of our forest with their cows——————–who are the owners of the cows-Jonathan abi? Until we are able to find answers to these issues forget it–Buhari is too empty to lead Nigeria–and our troops—Because he was never a qualified General! He stole the rank of a General with a fake certificate————and the soldiers know that–let my people go

      They were threatening to protect the indivisble Nigeria with low intensity force, but with Boko Haram where they are authorized to use maximum force available, look who’s dying like flies. My bet their MIA commanding officer is anotherr Yoruba clown like Fela nephew, Ransome-Kuti… he has turned all his phones and is probably dressed like DSP Alams at Heathrow awaiting escape route.

            Yes God will punish them and you think there are no Ibos and other ethnic in the Nigerian army. Must everything be about Jonathan vs them, you don’t even care about the missing army….

          • Peter

            Sorry, my brother for your decency. I merely referred my curse to the evil APC/Boko Haram perpetrators who brought this insurgency on their people. If you remember, there was no Boko Haram before and during the time of the late Musa Yar’dua. Boko Haram arms struggle began immediately it became clear that Jonathan was going to succeed Yar’dua. The message became household that power must return to the north. That agitation saw the birth of Boko Haram. Notable northern leaders like the former governor of Adamawa State had even along the line threatened to report the former COAS to the ICC for what they termed war crime and genocide against the people of the north whenever the military stepped up its fight against the insurgents. So my brother, you see why I am cursing them.

          Madam Jasmine, you said I should post a link where I criticize my friends when they rejoiced on hearing similar news during Jonathan era, so i should save all my online comments or what? And must everything be Jonathan vs them before we can comment or are we not Nigerians, what are you trying to tell me? You miss the point madam, the 105 missing soldiers are not from the north and southwest mind you, there are ibos and other ethnic in the army that’s why am baffled at people mocking the army for the loss. “kazkaz” is just my pseudonym, FYI the name is Kazeem and you’re the the real hypocrites here because anyone that don’t support your jonathan is an enemy or hypocrites.

          • share Idea

            The matter will be worse if the list of missing soldier is released and more Southern Nigerians are the ones missing, that is when Buhari and his handlers will understand what conspiracy can do to an administration…

            How is the APC under the ‘messiah’ performing now??
            Oh..so you are now hiding under a pseudonym? Why?? Hahaha!

    If all the 105 soldiers were killed, the bodies would hav been seen. They soldiers probably had to RETREAT! The terrorists are ready to lay down their lives for their ’cause’. Unfortunately, how many of our men are ready to die for this country as it is??
    terrorism should NEVER have been politicised by APC.
    They are now facing the same issues the previous regime faced..and performing woefully.
    Same APC and her e-worms told us BH can only hit ‘soft’ targets now. So what do we call a battalion of 105 well armed soldiers??(even APC had told us they have been properly equipped in ‘5mnths’).
    Unfortunately, the minister for information and the APC e-worms go into hiding on hearing from like this..but rush out foaming in the mouth when they hear Dasuki is to be arrested!

When you were in power how many times did we hear that Nigerian troops won over bh? Was it not because of elections that you told us lies that you have recovered 27 lgs after 6years of inaction?

          I think he deserves some encouragement, cos at least he and wahala have tried to turn up even though wahala must have ‘encouraged’ himself with odeku. The rest like Tundemash ar either hiding under FAK NAMES like kazeem aka kazkaz..or shivering in their slimy holes.
          I feel for them..

            Since you do not understand Deconstructive language, let me dissect it for you. Bh was the brainchild of Pdpigs, as said by Reuben, who was booted out of office because he was caught on camera sucking his Oga’s wife breasts. Asari Dokubo was caught by the Togolese government training mercenaries, to be used In Nigeria, under the guise of IT University. Remember it was Jonadumb that got him out, flewn to Abj. And taken straight to Ask Rock? Can you still remember OBJ’s uncountered accusation of 1000 men pencilled for death by trained assassins? Is there any meaning to all these now?

    Mark Zuckerberg On the ongoing Bombing In Nigeria by Boko Haram. Says
    (We’ve activated Safety Check again after the bombing in Nigeria this evening. But
    It is a shame that the Nigerian Media often refuses to Write about Boko Haram attacks, in Nigeria within the last 6 Months) Unquote-Yet the Press led by PT, often win awards for investigative Journalism–in London daily–what a shame.The Facebook founder has finally shamed the entire Nigerian media. All of you are a disgrace to what the media stands for in the world–Pursuance of Truth, Equity ati Jusitice for all-regardless of Color, Creed, Mosque or Church. But Premium Times, is more into protecting ElRufai ati SANUSI the Emir of Kano,REMITA-and NNPC than reporting on how the army framed up General Kuti-Because of the Sins of the late Father Dr. Beko Kuti against Buhari. Nothing on the killing machine of the Fulani fighters in Boko haram-During the era of Jonathan-The Press in Nigeria led by Sharia Reporters and Premium Times ati Punch would have described Jonathan as a weakling and clueless-IJAW PRESIDENT. But now it is sympathy for our dying soldiers–were soldiers not killed during the era of Jonathan?—–Instead of planning ON how to win the boko haram war, the Army Generals are chasing protesters in the south east–ati d SS—-Army Chiefs are threatening fire and brimstone—-rather than take police action–AGAINST THOSE CALLING FOR THE RELEASE OF KANU- Sadly it is the visionless-brigade commanders who often appear on TV on behalf of the Apes in APC to threaten IPB–animals

    Everybody knows tht the BH we are witnessin lately since last one year is PDP orchestrated type. They wanted to use it for political gain, it didn’t work out so they are frustrated and call it battle to finish. Its a game plan between GEJ men and neighboring country. I’m very sure they will fail again by God Grace.

    • Capt

      Your ignorance is legendary

  • Excisionist

    I wont shade tears if these soldiers are usual Hausa-Fulani defectors or saboteurs. Naturally Hausa-Fulani are cowards who always go after soft targets – unarmed civilians. But when they are faced with real fight, they send others or run.

    Before they talk nonsense of their gallantry during the civil war, may we remind them that the war was fought by soldiers from the Middle Belt who have since apologized for being used. Hausa-Fulani Mohammedans are very good scavengers. Like hyenas they wait to devour other people’s kills.

    I urge soldiers from the North Central, South West, South South, and South East not to participate. This is Hausa-Fulani war. They should sort it out.

    Musa Aliyu, you are the one writing a book about Boko Haram? You also speak on the terrorist channel Aljazeera. Your consiracy theorry in this forum gives an idea of whe possible content of your “book” You are all big losers.
    Hausa-Fulani created BH to kill Christians and Ibos. Now, Boko Haram has overgrown you. You and your Mohammedan folks should clean up the mess you have created. Don’t wait for others to do the dirty job. Losers !!!

  • John, The Truth liberates

    I hope Nigerians soldiers get sofisticated training required for their job. We don’t hear soldiers from other countries, even in Africa loosing their lives in large numbers like this. Something need to be done professionally… It is not about shooting guns only but advanced techniques in war need to be learned otherwise they may keep loosing their lives

    I would advice Buhari to bring back those South African hired professional soldiers that Dasuki/Jonathan used to penetrate BH enclaves. We now know that APC used propaganda and deceit to come to power. Burutai, the chief of army staff is busy doing press-up as if he is a physical and health education teacher. None-sense!. May God protect the soldiers.

    • FearGod

      Kai! Don’t mention those names again o. Jonathan is already expelled. Dasuki must be crushed also for being in possession of very important video of APC/Jega meeting in Dubai where the rigging process was discussed.

  • terry

    i think this could be a calculated attempt to get rid of southern soldiers since they could not fired them. their names should be published, why nigerians want to know what happened, we are monitoring this situation closely

  • Otile

    What are sojajin Najeriya fighting for there? There is no oil, no valuable resources to die for. Southern soldiers should not die simply because Buhari promised to wipe our his relatives fighting for their independence by December. The promise could be a ruse to lure in Southern soldiers so that vandals can make worms meat out of them. A closer look shows that often southern casualties are due to friendly fire of Northerners gunning them down, Northerners leaking their plans or denying them adequate weapons. This war is unjust.

  • Otile

    Wallahi. I miss my friend Abubakar tundemash. We need him to come out and put the story straight, to tell us how the dead or missing soldiers are the weak and cowardly ones who are not patriotic to the nation. He also knows how Imam is going to make Islamic terrorism a thing of the past by the end of December. Abubakar will assure us how the appointment of 2 able ministers Rotimi and Fashola is the best thing that happened to one Nigeria in history; that with these 2 dragon-slaying men corrupt practices will be over. He is going to demonstrate how these men will take the law into their hands and kill suspected enemy(PDP) corrupt officials.

    Our Dear Goodluck Jonathan,

    I write on behalf of all Nigerians to tender an unreserved apology to you for unknowingly voting you out of office as the president of “once upon a time” giant of Africa, Nigeria.

    I know many will shy away from accepting this fact, especially those from the Aggrieved People Caucus (APC) who are commonly known for boasting of what they cannot or will never do.

    Before your unfortunate exit, we Nigerians used to buy fuel at N87.00 per litre. Who knows, maybe by now you would have brought it down to N22.00 per litre had you not been voted out.

    Your Excellency, believe me, we have all learnt our lessons and we promise never to repeat such a blunder again as a Nation.

    It may interest you to know that we have finally come to terms with ourselves that President Muhammadu Buhari’s primary ambition was to be a petroleum minister, which he has finally got on a platter of Gold. Unaware he had earlier tried to make us believe he was tricked by some unknown APC scammers to put his plans on hold. Then suddenly he announced to us that he was now the Minister of Petrelum Resources–of the very Ministry that he was once accused of stealing 2.8b dollars.

    In view of the the discovery of the above theft in the oil industry, we are currently at a round-table meeting with PMB to accept your unconditional return to presidency, and for him to rather concentrate on the Ministry of Petroleum till further notice. If that is all he want to enable us have peace in the country with Boko haram.

    Accept the assurance of the fact that once the “old soldier” signs the memorandum of understanding, we will communicate same to you.

    While re-emphasising our regret as regards your exit from power, we are hopeful that you are currently on the drawing board to re-strategize and do what you know how to do best ahead.

    Please accept our sincere apologies.

    Michael Joel,

    Yours truly.

    105 Soldiers Killed in Gudunbali: All Military Vehicles, Tanks, Taken Away By Boko haram [ Detailed Summary]

    1] 105 soldiers from 157 Military Battalion allegedly Killed in the Fighting.
    2] Nigerian Most Suffiscated Armoured Vehicles Taken – T-72 tank with artillery arms from the unit.
    3] The commanding Officer (CO) of the battalion Fear Killed.
    4] Boko Haram took 8 Military vehicles, a truck loaded with 60,000 rounds of AA ammunition and 3 weaponry pieces.

    It is a shame that Boko Haram, which were almost crushed by former president Goodluck Jonathan after we secured weapons from Russia, China and Ukraine is now powerful enough to attack a military base.
    Nigerians demand explanation from President Muhammadu Buhari. We have never lost our Gallant Soldiers in this manner in any time. – Hope For Nigeria

    • Muhammad Turaki

      Before Buharis explanation, why dont you first call jonathan to account for the huge money misappropriated as recently unveiled by the presidential committee of investigation. had the money been properly utilised for its purpose, thousands of innocent lives wouldn’t have been lost. Backtrack and evaluate for your own sake without sharing that mischievous and fatuous yaps of yours.

    How are we sure that kanu and his biafrans have not started joining forces against nigeria. If not how could a nigerian be celebrating the demise of a fellow nigerian who dies in his stead. May the good lord accept the souls of our gallant soldiers.

  • G. Banny

    This was a rout. the Army PR unit maty like to spin it as less than a defeat but it is a defeat all the same.

    What the Army should about is to avoid a repeat rout. It is daft if the Army expects to be praised for this.

  • Omo Oodua Tokan-tokan

    Is Buhari fighting Boko Haram or aiding Boko Haram to fight the Nigerian State? Since Buhari became the President, Boko haram has been more powerful, more consistent, and gaining more grounds. Bokohari has said many times before now that any attack on Bokoharam is an attack on the North, so is there something Bokohari know about his foot soldiers (BH) that Nigerians dont know? He removed Check points so as to make easy access for Boko haram killers, he even said the bombings of innocent Nigerians will have to continue for now and may not stop soon. Many liberated town from boko haram are now being attacked easily by boko haram fghters. Am so sure Buhari will be so happy about the terrorist attack on France. God will surely reveal the hearts of the evil ones.

  • Excisionist

    Recent statements from Buhari and the army suggest that Buhari is more concerned about unarmed, peaceful Biafra demonstrators than about Boko Haram. Buhari and all the Northern Islamic leaders who have sponsored and are sponsoring BH are responsible for all the blood shed by BH. This is what Nigerians should bring to the attention of the ICC and Western leaders.
