Nigerian military kills 67 terrorists in Gombe town counter attack

The Nigerian military in an onslaught on Thursday in Bajoga, Gombe State killed 67 Boko Haram extremists, the Defence Headquarters, DHQ, has said.

The terrorists on a mission to capture Ashaka town, the host community of Ashaka Cement Plant, were in a convoy of over 30 vehicles and motorcycles.

The DHQ had on Saturday in a statement said that 10 soldiers were killed in that battle.

It said troops which got an intelligence report on their mission pursued the terrorists and laid ambush for them.

The terrorists while fleeing the town were able to retrieve three truckloads of their dead members but could not continue with their proposed mission.

The DHQ said some of the soldiers that sustained injury during the battle are receiving treatment in military hospitals.

Some of the terrorists had on Thursday attacked the Ashaka cement plant in Bajoga. The militants also carried out a similar attack last month when they carted away explosives after attacking the plant.

The vehicles and heavy equipment used by the terrorists were said to be destroyed before they fled the community.

Also, a number of terrorists died in an encounter with some troops on patrol in Kwanta, Yobe State. The troops did not record any casualty in this battle.

Equipment and weapons including Rapid Propelling Guns, RPGs, tubes, machine guns and rounds of different calibres of ammunition were captured from the terrorists.

  • sharp shape

    Give the rag heads hell boys! Kudos to the Nigerian army

    my brother I am a Muslim, but when a Christian does not even know his own bible it makes you wonder ! just a few biblical quotes for you concerning political leadership
    Old Testament
    proverbs 24:21 ” Fear the Lord and the King my son and do not join rebellious officials”

    Daniel 4:17 “The decision is announced by messenger, the holy one declare the verdict, so that the living may know that the most high is sovereign over all kingdoms on earth and gives them to anyone he wishes and sets over them the lowliest of people
    Jonathan did not have the most basic childhood comfort that most of us had just like APC morons like to refer to him as shoeless because he was of that background yet God fulfilled his word by saying in Daniel the lowliest of people he will set over you !

    New Testament
    Romans 13:1-2 “Every person is to be in subjection to the governing authority, for there is no authority except from God, and those which exist are established by God (2) Therefore whoever resist authority has opposed the ordinance of God; and they who oppose will receive condemnation upon themselves” !
    so my brother just a few passage from the bible
    the hadith also has some passage
    “Hear and obey your (leader) even if an Ethiopian slave whose head is like raisin is made your chief”. Al Bukhari recorded this hadith. Umm Al-Husayn said that she heard the messenger of Allah (pbuh) giving a speech during the farewell hajj in which he said and quote “even if a slave is was appointed over you and he rules you then listen to him and obey him. (Muslim) recorded this hadith in another narration quote “the prophet said even if an Ethiopian slave whose nose was mutilated is made your chief obey him”
    Democracy is a beautiful thing, it gives the ordinary man a voice in governance but that voice must not be misused to denigrate your leader! I have shown by using a few passages from the two dominant religious faiths in Nigeria, to show people of faith that they should be wary of the influence of the religious bigots and read their holy books themselves with understanding. not some fools who call themselves imams and pastors ! my brother ignorance is no excuse : it is also written God does not have patience with fools !
