Boko Haram ambushes Nigerian soldiers, kill one in Damboa

Boko Haram gunmen on Tuesday ambushed troops of the Nigeira army moving along the dangerous Maiduguri-Biu highway and killed one soldiers, security sources said.

The gunmen, in what appeared a reprisal attack for the killing of their members during the Sunday night encounter in Damboa, had laid in ambush at a spot not far from Damboa and opened fire on unsuspecting solders.

“Our troops were on their way to Damboa this morning when the insurgents ambushed them. We lost one soldier,” the source said.

A top security personnel confirmed the attack but declined being quoted in this report.

    What were our troops going to do in Damboa? This looks like provocation to me. Our troops know that their is ceasefire in place yet they drove their heavy trucks in town occupied by the enemy. Imam Shekau Allah ya yi zamani.

        What is your concern with his religion over national issues? Lets be matured please.

      • Otile

        Christian or Moslem, God must be praised.

    • tundemash

      The question you should be asking your mentor is:
      it’s allmost 24hrs since Boko Haram sponsors, Dumbo and Modu Sherrif, had their weekly terrorrism meeting in Aso Rock; has Modu Sherriff not passed the directive from Dumbo to the Boko Haram field operatives yet ?

      • Otile

        Abubakar tundemash, you are in love with 2 words, clown and moron, you cannot start your diatribe without reciting them. Can you ask your question again, what you are trying to ask here doesn’t make any sense. This time try to ask without starting with your habitual moron/clown.

        • the truth

          Lol I dey laf in objs voice

          • tundemash

            Where are the girls Dumbo terrorists were supposed to have released 3 days ago Mr. fake Neutral ?

        • tundemash

          I decided to add prince to your clown this time around. And what is wrong using word that befit e-rats ?
          CLOWN PRINCE, don’t try to duck the question:
          it’s allmost 24hrs since Boko Haram sponsors, Dumbo and Modu Sherrif, had their weekly terrorrism meeting in Aso Rock; has Modu Sherriff not passed the directive from Dumbo to the Boko Haram field operatives yet ?

          Or is your Otuoke dummy finally “falling” your hands ?

          • Otile

            Abubakar tundemash, it is clear that you are addicted to these two words, clown and moron, there’s nothing anyone can do about it. Carry on Abubakar, you can add a crown or whatever tickles your fancy, it doesn’t matter, but try to be civil somethings. The insult on the person of the President doesn’t buy you anything.

          • the truth

            With your insinuation both obj and yaardua God rest his soul sponsored boko haram when boko haram struck during their tenure.I could also deduce from your cowardly assertion that obj sponsored the Niger delta militants,and gowon sponsored pounding and biafra

          • tundemash

            Mr. fake Neutral ….. if this is the agbero logic you can offer, then Reno is wasting his time paying you to copy and paste.
            Name me an accused terrorist sponsor OBJ and Yaradua were hobnobbing with when they were in power ?
            Name me when OBJ or Yaradua considered corruption to be mere stealing ?
            Name me how many convicted rogues OBJ/Yaradua were hobnobbing with ?
            Name me when OBJ / Yaradua accused the Niger Delta as a people of sponsoring terrorrism ?
            Name me when OBJ / Yaradua accused the opposition of sponsoring Niger Delta terrortists ?

            The more you write, the more you expose your emptiness; Reno would soon sack you! Where is your e-rat coordinatir now – deri the redeemer ?

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Are you serious with that comment, Otile?

      That OUR MILITARY should be restricted in moving around within the NIGERIAN TERRITORY?

      What next, blow the siren and clear way for boko haram commenders too?

      Na wa o!

      • Chris1408

        LOL

      • Otile

        My brother I do indeed appreciate your humor most of the time. Believe it or not, sometimes I like to play the devil’s advocate to elicit good humor form you and other intelligent contributors. Sometimes too, I have to be confrontational to extract the good stuff from reluctant good people.

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          I stand corrected in that case!

          • Otile

            No wahala.

    • Chris1408

      What ceasefire? Only a coward will negotiate with merciless terrorist like Boko Haram. We negotiated with Niger Delta terrorists, look at what we have now, a deadlier Boko Haram.

      • Nuhu

        YOUR INFANTILE COMMENTS ALWAYS GIVE YOU AWAY AS A FLY ON THE STINKING ASS OF THAT DRUG CONVICT TURNED APC NATIONAL LEADER…

        AS LONG AS YOU SEE WHITE AND INSIST IT IS BLACK LIKE LIE MOHAMMED DID IN THE CASE OF ASARI DOKUBO IN SOUTH AFRICA, YOU WILL CONTINUE LONGER IN LAMENTATION …..

        YOU ARE AN HYPOCRITE!

  • tundemash

    Almost 24hrs since Boko Haram sponsors, Dumbo and Modu Sherrif, had their weekly terrorrism meeting in Aso Rock; has Modu Sherriff not passed the directive from Dumbo to the Bokoo Haram field operatives yet ?

    • Nuhu

      Tunde MESS, YOU ARE REALLY A BASTARD. I THOUGHT YOU HAVE GONE WITH THE IBADAN FLOOD….OR ARE U AMONG THE THUGS FLUSHED OUT FROM THE N3.3BILLION FAYEMI PALACE IN EKITI STATE…

      • tundemash

        Another frustrated e-rat. Unfortunately I am around to make your life miserable

  • Bigzy

    Irrespective of what is going on in the polity, the Military must press ahead to wipe out these merciless killers. The so called ceasefire has only afforded the killers time to regroup. In so far as they are in control of any section of the Nigerian territory, the Military reserves the right to go after them.

  • Chris1408

    Well trained and disciplined military would have been alert and battle ready when traveling to a battle zone. Anyway what happened to the girls that were supposed to have been released since Monday? Or it’s not yet Monday on GEJ calendar.

    • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

      Chris1408, which one you dey?

      Monday never comes!

      • Chris1408

        My brother, I tire oooooo. They say things just to say it. Unfortunately Nigerians don’t hold them to it

        • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

          Mister Jonathan is the “best ever” President we have ever had – perfect for making promises, never keeping them and then moving the goalpost forever.

          • Chris1408

            And some Nigerians are still clamoring for him to come back and further ruin the country. I guess some people just love living in darkness and in abysmal situation

          • Kay Soyemi (Esq.)

            Abi o!

            Their minds are totally captured and enthralled by their tormentors!

          • Nuhu

            I THINK THE HIGH COST OF LIVING IN APC GOVERNED LAGOS HAS FINALLY EATEN OFF UR BRAIN BECAUSE DISCERNING MINDS CAN SEE THAT YOU DON’T RECOGNISE THE EXISTENCE OF A STATE GOVERNMENT…. PDP GOVERNED AKWA IBOM STATE IS FLOURISHING AND THE PEOPLE ARE HAPPY…BUT YOUR APC GOVERNED STATES ARE FULL OF LAMENTATION AND YOU ARE BLAMING THE PRESIDENT….BLIND GOAT

          • PulloGorko102

            He’s an embarrassment to us. He bows down like a puppet and a sissy for western countries and sells out his people.

    • Nuhu

    I dont think you guys know how difficult it is to ambush the army, something is just not right here. This government should stop offering men of the Nigerian army up as sacrificial lambs. It is high time we demanded an explanation into these senseless attacks on the army from their commanding officers. something isnt right.
