Hundreds of Boko Haram terrorists feared killed in Adamawa

A fierce gun duel is taking place between members of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents and Nigerian troops who have been intensifying efforts to reclaim territories captured by the insurgents in Adamawa Northern zone.

Reports from the area indicate that about 200 insurgents may have been killed in this latest offensive forcing them to retreat as Nigerian troops took control of Michika.

According to a source, “the Nigerian troops have gained an upper hand in the ongoing war to rout the insurgents out of Michika town which has been under the grip of the insurgents for close to a month.

“Nigerian troops are advancing towards Gulak in consolidation of the success they have made but the insurgents launched an offensive against them leading to the fierce battle between the two sides which is on as at the time of filling this report.”

Another source from Michika said Nigerian troops entered the town following a phenomenal success they made against the insurgents who suffered severe casualties.

“The Nigerian troops have gained entry into Michika and are now fully in control of the town having killed a lot of them (the insurgents),” the source said.

The sources, however, added that it has not been an easy feat for the Nigerian troops as they are facing stiff resistance from the insurgents as they advance towards Gulak.

He added that that both sides have been in a prolonged gun duel as many insurgents and ammunitions were deployed to counter the troops.

“There is heavy fighting between the insurgents and Nigerian troops as the insurgents are doing everything to frustrate the effort of the Nigerian troops and many people who are trapped in the towns are now sneaking out following intensified fighting,” our source said.

“The gallant Nigerians soldiers were attacked from the back by the militants but the military men engaged them in a fierce battle for over five hours back.”

Efforts to get the reaction of the Public Relations Officer of the 23rd Army Brigade in Yola failed. His telephone phone line was not reachable.

    So, Ahmed Gulak is a refugee running from his own enclave ba? Busy campaigning for a return of Dr. Dumbo is proof the people in this Govt. think from hole in their back portions. Now that Dr. NOI has personally paid for Russian armament directly from her Ministry, the Nigerian Army of course can route the ragheads if the political will is there. Big thanks to the Zulus for choking the source of illegal arms to the terrorists, it’s now down to an alley fight between trained soldiers and banditos… we shall see how long they will continue to illegally hoist Arabic flags on us in the name of a visionless fight for Allah. Arid Clowns! @NaijaArmy… kudos! O’jare !!!

    • Dan Fulani

      With Dokubo Asari and the CAN Sect Gen in S A jails the gallant Army can now do what they know best. God be the Nigerian Army.
      Nasuru milallah.

        Oritsejafor a pastor sponsored the beheading of a Nigerian pilot while his killers were reciting words from the Quran I guess!!!
        My friend, Oritsejafor was the only prominent christian speaking against boko haram and you scums think you can use taqiyya to deface the truth. The church can not be extinguished. Kill as many martyrs as you like, claim as many caliphates as you like, insult as many christian presidents and pastors as you wish, but know this my friend the Prince of Peace shall guide the church through this storm. RIP dearly departed ones (both military personnel and civilians who have been consumed by the rage of Islamic Jihad) Long Live Nigeria!!! May all you haters of peace live long to see what Nigeria shall be tomorrow

    • Otile

      Bro, read SR and get the latest. In today’s battle Imam Shekau’s boys massacred 70 of our ill-equipped young soldiers while trying to capture the towns of Bazza and Vimtim in Adamawa State. Incidentally, Vimtim is the home town of our Chief of Defense Staff, Gen Badeh. Mon gode Allah the General was not there they could have captured him intact, but Oluwa ma je.

      • Shehu Monguno

        Otile, I know and SR also told me that Boko Haram now has an air-force with helicopters piloted by men from your village. Wake up my friend.

        • Wähala

          Don’t mind him… SR is dead, compromised or beaten flat out. Everything Nigerian ends up in Naija way!

          • Otile

            Don’t deceive him. SR is not dead, they got better technology in New York than you people in old Europe or people in the villages here at home.

          • justsaying

            people in the villages have laptops and internet too…clearly you get the news on the internet.

          • Otile

            Where do you get your own news, from the war front?

        • Otile

          You can deny reality as you like, but eye witnesses saw Imam’s boys attack our ill-equipped troops in 3 choppers and one of our generals fled with boys into the bush. The General is now a wanted man. I know how difficult it is for naive people to believe the gains of boko boys, the fact is that they are more determined than our troops. They have nothing to lose but everything to gain in this war to defend Islam. Our troops are only defending oil for the rich, and they know it too.

          • Shehu Monguno

            Orile, from your post it is obvious you are one of the many Nigerians who live probably in Lagos and have become experts in Boko Haram. Who are the Boko boys you talk about? they are my brothers, cousins, friends neighbors and people in my very village and community. I have relatives still living in zones controlled by Boko Haram and we still get to communicate with them. I am from Monguno in Borno state at the very heart of the Boko Haram country and my dear wife is from Madagali in Adamawa state one of the towns been fought for at the moment. It is funny you who most probably live in Lagos and the Sahara Reporters boys in New York will be the ones telling me about events happening in my village.

          • Otile

            You see, we in Eko get more current news than people living in the villages. Villagers are only aware of their surroundings, that’s why.

          • Shehu Monguno

            Otile, really? people in Eko get more current news and from postings online many of you do not know that the difference between Borno and Adamawa state and are surprised that there are large forest in Northern Nigeria that has elephants. Several people from Eko have shown their ignorance online when they posted that the solution is to the Boko Haram crisis is to kill all the Hausa/Fulani not knowing that the Boko Haram insurgency is regarded as a Kanuri insurgency, Borno is a Kanuri state and both Shekau 1 and 2 were both Kanuri men

          • Otile

            You see what I mean. There is only one Imam Shekau. What you call Shekau 1 and 2 is mere propaganda used often to divert attention. Whenever the battle heats up Gen Christian Olukolade kills him again to give us hope and dampen the morale of boko boys.

          • Shehu Monguno

            Otile, the original Mallam Abubakar Shekau whom I call Shekau 1 was a well known Islamic scholar who use to sell perfume in Maiduguri as a source of living as far back as 2002. Many long time residents of Maiduguri knew Shekau 1. The second Abubakar Shekau who I call Shekau 2 is not the same original Abubakar Shekau (Shekau 1) we all knew living and growing up in Maiduguri

      • Wähala

        Which SR? Since they fcuked-up their site, I have no time to scour thru the maze of ads they call news outlet…
        However, the news you refer to is 6days old, bro. We’re on “current affairs” dianyi… stay focused you go see Oba!

        • Dr Chukwudinma Prime

          Premium times is good, but I trust SR more. They don’t accept ads from corrupt state governors like TA Orji and co, in order not to impair their conscience. Moreover, Sowore has a great biography, and most of SR reporters’ stories–just like PT too–are proven pieces of investigative journalism.. They just can’t stop bursting corrupt politicians.

      • freeborn

        the poorly written piece you read stated that BH massacred 70 soldiers but only 300 BH members were killed. Massacred indeed!!! Sorry to burst your bubble but our ”ill-equipped” soldiers are winning the war

    • Alhaji yusuf

      SR is the mouthpiece of APC and Boko Haram. You can never read anything good about Nigeri or GEJ there

      • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

        Could that be because the truth is unpalatable?

        • Tunji Olarewaju

          Gbam,my brother!!!

    • freeborn

      Dr NOI I guess paid it from her own pockets not on GEJ’s directives. You reasoning is appalling.

      • Wähala

        Dr. NOI runs that country if you don’t know…
        Dumbo runs a cartel of crooks and infidels…
        Your reasoning can never match mine in a century…
        Phoool with a badge. Clown!

  • gymer

    May God be with the Gallant men of the Nigerian Armed forces. Our prayers are with you. You will surely triumph over the evil BH

  • Arogbo

    May God continue to bless and protect our troops as they are fighting to liberate our fatherland from the scourge of the earth. Long live the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

    • Otile

      Long live the Islamic Caliphate of Arewa
      Long live Biafra
      Long live SS
      Death to oppressors

  • jamesbond3

    May God continue to protect our troops as they put their lives on the line in fighting these evil Islamic monsters called Boko Haram. And I also hope the good name of the Nigerian army will be restored

    • Otile

      Pray for our boys to desert en mass and go home to meet their parents alive. What are they risking their lives and limbs for, to keep Nigeria one, Oluwa ma je.

      • freeborn

        ‘desert and go home to meet their parents alive’?!? What happens when the islamist jihadists overrun his comrades he deserted at the frontline and pursue him to his parents house where they would of course find him cowardly alive. would he be spared?

        • Otile

          Naa, give boko boys their Islamic Cliphate they will not attack you again.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Amen, James.

      Something beats me though – why do our Editors allow topical headlines such as “feared dead or killed” for those whom we are all hoping would get exterminated when such happens?

      If it is because the numbers are unconfirmed, would it not be more appropriate to write “reported dead or killed”?

      Using “feared”, I am afraid, sends the wrong message.

      Editor, please note.

      • Yiljap Abraham

        And this too,”…the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents…” While our soldiers are simply referred to as “…Nigerian troops”. What does Editor really want to communicate by this?
