Boko Haram: Military got intelligence report before Monguno attack, yet taken by surprise

FILE PHOTO: Recapture of Mubi Town

The Nigerian military received reliable intelligence report indicating that the Boko Haram sect would launch a massive attack on Monguno, yet troops were taken by surprise when the insurgents struck early Sunday, suggesting the 5 Brigade stationed in the area failed to prepare adequately for the group’s onslaught.

Reliable military sources told PREMIUM TIMES that the Brigade received report indicating the insurgents would attack between January 22 and 25.

The report, our sources said, was read to officers and men of the Brigade on the night of January 22, with a stern warning that everyone should remain on high alert.

Despite warning troops to remain on alert, the leadership of the formation failed to take the necessary steps and make the right deployment of men and equipment to check the imminent attack, PREMIUM TIMES was told.

When the terrorists arrived on Sunday, the troops were therefore taken by surprise.

Military insiders said the insurgents arrived at about 2 am on Sunday, parking their Hilux vans deep into the bush, with their headlights on.

Soldiers of the Brigade, who saw the unusual lights, began to shoot in the direction of the vans without knowing that the insurgents had left the vans and advanced close to the Brigade headquarters.

Suddenly, the insurgents began to shoot sporadically. The troop of the Brigade, including those of the Multinational Joint Task Force [MJTF], who were camped at a school inside the barracks after they were dislodged from Baga, engaged the terrorists in a long exchange of gunfire.

The biggest fighting tank owned by the Brigade, known as Shika, killed several insurgents, and wounded several others.

It was such a long battle that the equipment, which provided cover for ground troops, suddenly ran out of ammunition and began to withdraw.

As it withdrew, the rifle men behind also retreated, as the insurgents followed in pursuit. In the process, the commander of the Brigade, a Brigadier General Yekini, and a few other soldiers were wounded. It is not clear the number of soldiers and insurgents killed in the attack.

“We could have overpowered the insurgents, but there was no enough ammunition,” an officer, who participated in the battle, told PREMIUM TIMES.

But when contacted Monday, the Director of Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, dismissed the suggestion that the military did not prepare enough for the attack despite knowing days before that it was coming.
“Because it is an area that is prone to attacks, our officers and men are always on the alert,” Mr. Olukolade said.

He declined further comments.

Meanwhile, the 5 Brigade commander, who was injured in the attack, has been removed from his post and replaced with another officer who addressed the dislodged soldiers on Monday morning asking them to remain calm and focused on the task ahead.

It is not known whether his removal has to do with the injury he suffered in battle or his alleged failure to prepare his Brigade well to fend off the onslaught.

Nigerian soldiers in Borno state had on Sunday faced three separate and daring raids by the extremist Boko Haram sect on three major towns, successfully repelling two of them, and losing the battle for one.

Mr. Olukolade said the daring attacks on Maiduguri and neighbouring Konduga by insurgents were successfully repelled by soldiers while officers and men of 5 Brigade lost the battle for Monguno.

    If the situation is a straight forward as this, then the Nigerian military is really in for it. If they don’t run and leave cache of weapons behind they’ll run out of ammunitions. What happens to providing supports and replenishment while battle is ongoing? How handles these guys logistics? If battle persists for hours and days, so they keep fighting on empty stomach? All our generals are armchair generals. General of Gulder and fresh fish. Me think the military should bring in those retired hands that fought ECOMOG, to be able to tap from their wealth of experience.

    • Otile

      You mean General Malu? Tufiakwa. The man who stole Sierra Leone gold silly? There is nothing to steal in the North. Northern officers can only fight wars effectively where there are minerals to steal like in Biafra, and Sierra Leone.

  • saidu Aliero

    The funniest thing is now our men are not ordered to continue chasing bh, they will be lodge with no arms waiting for the bh to attack them again.
    Why cant them keep fighting to the end?

    • Otile

      What are they fighting for in the first place? You must have a good cause to put your life at risk in the first place. Do you care?

  • Dumbo

    There is clearly lack of political will to end the war and it is all deliberate plan by GEJ an PDP to extend their tenure. The coward behaviour exhibited by the soldiers also happens when the president and COAS all come from the place. They are only used to criminality and breaking of pipeline to steal oil. They are not exposed to fighting proper war and that is why they always drop their weapons and run.

  • Wähala

    “Despite intelligence report… Military gets punished for complacency in Monguno” – is a better title this report. No wonder the US is only cooperating with Cameroon and Chad in their efforts to contain the insurgency from spreading wider beyond the W/African sub-region, the Americans took a look at our Tombo Generals and said, Nah Men… these clowns are afraid to fight the enemy, what kinda soldiers are you? A soldier going to battle and running out of bullets is akin to a student going to sit for WAEC only to run out of ink in his Bic biro. A serious Army in volatile and fluid situation would have 24hrs recon around their bases if the military Spokesman is to be taken seriously, but getting caught in the toilet with their pants down is a big shame and unprofessional, to say it mildly. Stealing academic records from Army archives is all NA is good at… and running from the enemies is what they’re notorious for. Clowns.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Wahala, the fault is not fully with the military on this one!

      Even Jonothing knew about the intelligence report at the time he was campaigning in Maiduguri. Boko haram was reported to be just leaving Sambisa at the time and a request for Air Force jets to be deployed against the moving vehicles were refused on the grounds that they were protecting Jonothing.

      Even then, the intelligence was withheld from the city until Jonothing left!

      This is a pure case of putting politics before national interest.

      Lastly, I will ask the question again, why is our military on defensive, rather than on offensive duties against the insurgency?

      Deliberately?

    and yet some people want to return! This are some of the reasons why other countries can’t work with Nigeria to fight this insurgency. Incompetence and corruption…Them don thief, thief, thief so tey no money for ammunition to combat insurgency and yet dey want to return.

  • Guguru

    Weeping is the only thing I can do right now because as far as I am concerned, the military leadership has exhibited a high degree of operational recklessness. The commander of the unit responsible for this operation, who received intelligence reports, should be court-martialled. This is unacceptable. People died needlessly because someone did not do their job.

    As civilian as I am, I can prepare against this attack by boko haram. When intelligence report came in…. all they needed to do was begin reconnaissance, set up a perimeter of 5 miles around the target. Station officers at every edge of the perimeter to monitor any approaching vehicle or personnel. Call the military headquarters for reinforcement, to be stationed in another location, not too far from Monguno.The aim of this is to surround the terrorists from left right and center. Finish them off and secretly pursue the fleeing once so as to find out about their abode.

    As military generals, I expect them to do more.

    • TAWANDA INCOMMUNICADO

      Close your big Ajegunle mouth and enrol in the army then.

      If indeed intelligence was received and the attack cost lives,it is left for the Army to hold someone accountable for the obvious failure BUT THIS REPORT IS UNSUBSTANTIATED BECAUSE IT JUST QUOTES ” A reliable source”.

    Most of the commanders in the Nigerians army are working for Buhari–and the sultan of Sokoto-if u watch very carefully anytime there is going to be a major strike by the Nigerians Armed Forces, the first thing our Defence Headquarters does is to rush to the newspaper houses to inform the nation of an impending attack by the Nigerian Army–against BOKO HARAM-I have said on more than 90 occasions here that Dasuki is a traitor———and should be fired–Was he not there with the president in Bauchi and Katsina when he was attacked by the fualnis—-‘ Yet he had noting to say when Yagudu alleged that it was Jonathan who arranged to have his own security men attacked and injured by thugs————-What is GUSAU still doing in the Ministry of Defence for heaven sake-This was the same Gusua who was with Obj, when Boko Haram was created in 2002–by d Fulanis—-He by his experience-is supposed to have had enough information to thwart the efforts of Boko Haram–but is he doing that?—————-the war in the Fulani north is not being fought by Ijaw militants–The fighters are Fulani Tuaregs from the West African sub-region–why should the Fulani emirs that abound in the North of Nigeria, not be able to bring this war to an end by talking to their tribesmen———————–why–Buhari is Fulani—if he cannot reach out to Boko Haram, the way way Ijaw leaders met with the militants in the niger delta–then what are we together for–because of the oil wells? He is busy using Oluwole certificates to search for a vacant room in the presidency’ To help redistribute the oil well to the emirs again-may be?

    • Dan Arewa

      Jaspa it seems you lost it already. Azazi was the one who openly blamed PDP for Boko Haram activities in the north. Ihejirika is also a twin brother of Sherif in sponsoring/financing Boko Haram activities as exposed by Stephen Davies and all these terror sponsors are being protected by Jonathan. So if there is any sabotage, it is Jonathan that is sabotaging his own government not anyone else sabotaging him.

    This government and the military are working hand in hand with Boko Haram, which is why the U.S. government will not embark on any joint action with them.

    Nigerian Army Private Mohammadu Buhari heartlessly executed these three innocent young and youthful Yoruba boys with backdated decrees that did not exist at the time they were arraigned for trial falsely alleging that the boys are drug cheats.

    Today …… Nigerians know better …….. Buhari is indeed a shameless cheat who has been cheating all his life.

    Buhari joined the Army Officer Cadre without WASC and remained in the Army without WASC rising to position of Major General and Head of State …… still without WASC.

    Buhari retired from the Army without WASC and has been contesting Presidential elections (2003, 2007, 2011) still without WASC.

    In 2014 Buhari-the-Cheat …… upped his cheating game by forging a WASC.

    If Buhari had the wicked mind to use backdated decrees to execute these innocent YORUBA boys by faslely accusing them of drug cheating ……. why should Buhari be spared public execution for cheating and lying all his life on the far more serious matter of WASC ?
