Fierce battle in Sambisa; Boko Haram’s top commanders killed, more women, children rescued

Nigeria Army Sambissa Op 14-01-15 (4)

One soldier died, four others were injured as Boko Haram terrorists battled in vain to retain nine major camps in the dreaded Sambisa forest where more women and children were found and rescued.

Troop commanders said hundreds of Boko Haram insurgents were killed in hours of gun battle.

The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Colonel Sani Usman, who made this known to newsmen in a statement, said two major combat tanks and high calibre ammunitions used by the Boko Haram terrorists were recovered while many others were destroyed.

The statement reads in full; “I wish to inform you that today (Wednesday) evening, troops of 7 Division Nigerian Army also cleared several terrorists strong points and training camps within Sambisa forest, Borno State, Nigeria.

“The troops have also rescued additional women and children. They have been evacuated to a safety zone for further processing.

“During the encounter unfortunately we lost a soldier, while 4 others were wounded in action. The troops have also killed several Boko Haram field commanders and foot soldiers and destroyed 2 Armoured Personnel Carriers, 2 Buffalo vehicles mounted with Anti-Aircraft Guns, a truck and several Hilux vehicles.

“The gallant soldiers also recovered 1 Anti-Aircraft Gun, 1 General Purpose Machine Gun, 1 Rocket Propelled Grenade and several AK-47 rifles. Sadly, 1 woman died and 8 other women sustained gun shot wounds.

“So far, the troops have destroyed 9 terrorist camps in the forest. This is in addition to the 4 destroyed yesterday. The destroyed camps includes Wulari Bukar, Gangala, Anguwar Bakwai and Jigide. Others include Kotorima, Lagara Bello and Lagara Fulani among others.

“I am glad to say that troops’ morale is very high as they are poised to accomplish the task of destroying all terrorists camps and rescuing all those held hostage by the terrorists”.
Meanwhile, the Director Defence Information, Chris Olukolade, a Major General, will today provide updates on the ongoing counter-terrorism campaign in North-Eastern Nigeria.

    Buhari has asked the Federal Government to stop the clampdown of Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed.

    Buhari who spoke on Sunday on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week monitored said accused the government of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants get special treatment.

    The former dictator said that unlike the special treatment given to the Niger Delta militants by the federal government, the Boko Haram members were being killed and their houses demolished by government.

    While accusing President Jonathan of failing from the beginning to address the security situation in the country, Buhari said he has never been in support of the state of emergency in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa state.

    According to Buhari “what is responsible for the security situation in the country is caused by the activities of Niger Delta militants. Every Nigerian that is familiar with what is happening knows this. The Niger Delta militants started it all.

        In a response to the Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law, a

      The Northerners have never been power-hungry people enough to kill and maim their own in order to seize power. They have ruled several times before and we know their style of rulership. But for first timers like the Niger Delta people, we have seen their style of rulership: with terror and religious divide. The only time we had an Igbo President, there was a bloody coup that was meant to wipe out the entire hierarchy of power and influence of all other tribes in the country, I guess the Igbos were just not contented with having a ceremonial president and would kill anyone and everyone to seize power for themselves. And if they couldn’t have it their way, then they would attempt to secede with Nigeria’s oil. This was of course followed by a civil war. Now we try to keep a watchful eye on the Igbos. Then came the Niger Delta people and their militancy-styled form of rulership, which is colored with bomb blasts and sponsored terrorism designed to divide the nation and weaken their perceived enemies from within (I must give it to them, though, they are more calculating than the Igbos). For the first time in the history of our great nation we had bomb blasts to accompany our independence day celebrations and a metamorphosis of a formless terrorist group called Boko Haram (nicely tinged with religious extremism) that the mighty Nigerian army just couldn’t seem to contain despite billions and billions in budgetary allocation. The major task of this terrorist group is to target the North, kill their Islamic clerics, assassinate their influential elites, bomb their mosques, burn their markets down, massacre their children who dare to go to school, kidnap and enslave their women and, whenever possible, bomb a church or two to upset the balance of religious peace in the region. Give the Northerners enough to keep their plate full so that they are unable to muster the mental energy to form a formidable opposition to the reign of our Niger Delta brother, Jonathan, as he prioritizes the needs of his tribesmen above that of all Nigerians.
      Thank you Nigeria! We have tested the rulership styles of the regions, and now we have settled to henceforth place the future of our nation and the lives of our children firmly in trust of Northern and/or Western leaders. Thank you.

  • ilesanmi

    Whatever the case may be, the military is making remarkable progress.
    Now that the deadly Islamic murderers are being pushed to the wall, they could become
    extremely dangerous therefore, greatest care must be taken to finish the onslaught.
    God shall continue to guide, protect and strengthen our gallant troops to the end of this war.

    • Duke

      The logic is SIMPLE.

      All the soldiers leading the fight & commanding the ‘battle’ against the Islamist terrorists/election army, are all Military officers from the North & West, i.e, Haausa/Yoruba officers who all traditionally APC members. Therefore, there they acted their script:
      – Refuse to engage the terrorists
      – Abandon your artillery when you get close to them and run or set fire on your equipment and run
      – Give information to the terrorists and sabotage the operations as much as possible…until the election is held an won… and then inform Boko Haram to dissipate into the population in North, abandon their captives……….and the war is OVER!
      – Making governance impossible for Jonathan has come to an end. (Act 1: Scene 1)

      So Boy, dont call God inside this matter. The Soldiers are acting a script written in desert Daura by the arewa supported by the oduduwa who have been frightened into submission.

      • Oweja

        Your ‘simple logic’ would have been unassailable if the current actions had waited till after May 29. As it is now, GEJ has reminded us even as at yesterday that he is still running the show; unless you are suggesting that both he and his commanders from ‘North & West’ are now taking instructions from another Commander In Chief.

      • Hcredo

        If a half-backed illiterate like you could know of this secret, then I’m sure Jonathan and his pool of advisers would have known this too. So, as commander-in-chief of the Nigerian army, what stopped Jonathan from replacing the military officers with well-meaning people like you who would defeat the Arewa agenda?

  • Stephanie

    Let them show us pictures. We are tired of reading statements that may be changed the next day. SHOW US PICTURES!!

    • Sword of Damocles

      Right on the money. Tell us the names of the BH commanders killed, or did they have “commander” tattooed on their forehead(indicating that they were commanders). Most importantly let the press have access to the women & girls rescued. People might think me funny, but Remember Gen Minimah is the Head of the Army, and by God he is certainly LACKING in leadership capability. It would not be the first time that the Nigerian Miliitary would have lied to the Nigerian people. If my memory serves me correctly, the Army announced within days of the Chibok girls abduction that they had rescued them. Methinks that the unprincipled leadership of the military is only trying to impress Mai Gaskiya.

        Now you’re talking. Finally someone is using his senses and not taking in propaganda hook-line-and-sinker.

    • Otile

      Allah no go gree. The 2 qualified people who should head to Sambisa Evil Forest are Judas Rauf Amaechi and his co-traveller Imam Rochas Okorocha. Both of them speak the same language with the far North, core North or sharia North, whatever you like to call them. These two traitors smell like the Islamists and their camels.

      • Hcredo

        Well, since according to you Boko Haram is sponsored by the North and supported by the Igbo traitors like Amaechi & Rochas, all in order to undermine the government of Jonathan. What better way is there for you to show your support for Jonathan and help solidify his hold in Nigeria than for you (and Igbos like you) to take up arms and storm Sambisa forest to destroy Jonathan’s enemies and secure peace for his administration? So that your dear Jonathan can better concentrate on his most important job of stealing our nation’s wealth.
        Sometimes I seriously wonder if people like you are actually capable of using reason or logic in your arguments.

        • Otile

          Where did you hear the words: reason and logic? You don’t seem to know what they mean. After rambling you succeeded in saying nothing. Sorry for you, odale you don’t make any sense.

  • Guguru

    Burning or Smoldering Spear, here is good news for you. LOL.

    “As Boko Haram continues to kill hundreds of people in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states and Abuja in several attacks, the need for the Presidency to name their sponsors with a view to bringing them to book has remained a stormy issue.

    However, President Goodluck Jonathan appears to have kept mute on the subject.

    At a time the president cried out that the sect had infiltrated his government.

    To many, the Amnesty International’s report titled: “Nigeria: More than 1,500 killed in Armed Conflict in North-Eastern Nigeria in early 2014” should make the Presidency reveal the identity of the financiers.

    The general feeling is that it is incumbent on Mr. President to expose anyone linked with the group.

    A security source, who preferred anonymity, said the Presidency may have chosen to be careful because of how highly connected these people are.

    Another reason the source gave was Mr. President’s ambition, which naming these people may put in jeopardy.”

    Daily Independent, April 2014, “Why Presidency may not name B’Haram’s sponsors”

      • Hcredo

        Why not, are they not both his self-proclaimed eternal enemies, Boko Haram & Arewa? Why not kill two birds with one stone.

  • Guguru

    Burning and Smoldering Spear, any words from Jonathan on why he did nothing to the internal saboteurs of his war on terror? LOL.

    “President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday maintained that internal and
    external sabotage is greatly responsible for the onslaught of the Boko
    Haram sect in the country.

    He made the remark when the Creative Professionals of Nigeria led by Segun Arinze, visited him at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

    Stressing that his administration is working hard to tackle terror in
    the country, the President was optimistic that terrorism will soon be
    over in Nigeria.

    He said: “We have challenges presently even in our infrastructure,
    but we are committed to expanding it be it in transportation, aviation,
    ports, roads and power infrastructure.”

    “One of our greatest challenges and I have to thank you for observing
    that one minute silence in their honour, is this security challenges.”

    “But we are working very hard, we have our frustrations, we have
    issues of sabotage, both internally and externally. But we are working
    very hard and by the grace of God we will overcome that problem.”

Did arna Gowon and corrupt Daguma not swear by their souls that if Ndigbo leaves the will fight again to bring them back? What do you want from Igbo people? Parasites

    • Hcredo

      At every opportunity you keep pointing out that Buhari said they should stop killing Boko Haram members and try dialogue instead. It is common sense to assume that if clamp-down failed for the Niger Delta militants but dialogue worked, then the same might work for Boko Haram. Good generals first attempt to win with dialogue before going to war (Sun Tzu’s Art of War). Who knows, perhaps if the Jonathan government had listened to Buhari and tried this strategy so much bloodshed would have been avoided, our girls would still be in the arms of their parents, and the country’s reserves wouldn’t have been exhausted by the defense budget. And all for nothing. It took the victory of Buhari at the polls to motivate the army to do its job. The current victory of the army against Boko Haram didn’t require Buhari to lift a finger, he certainly did not call his so-called fulani Boko Haram brothers and say “now that I have won the elections, you should stop fighting and let the Nigerian army obliterate you from the face of the earth”.

  • Guguru

    Burning and now Smoldering Spear,

    Under Jonathan, Nigerian Military was reduced to a boy scouts. LOL. Any advice for Jonathan here?

    The Nigerian military has admitted that hundreds of government troops have fled heavy fighting with Boko Haram, but said their apparent escape to neighbouring Cameroon was a “tactical manoeuvre”.

    The Cameroonian army said Monday some 480 Nigerian soldiers who sought refuge in the country, had been disarmed and accommodated in schools.

    The news came a day after Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau, released a new video in which he declared Gwosa, a town captured by the group, as part of an “Islamic Caliphate”.

    A spokesperson for the Army spokesperson, Lt. Col Didier Badjek, was quoted by the BBC as saying that the Nigerian soldiers are currently in the Cameroonian town of Maroua, about 80km from the Nigerian border.

    In a statement Monday, the Nigerian Defence Headquarters said the troops relocated to Cameroon in a “tactical manoeuvre”.

    Premium Times, August 2014, “Nigerian military calls soldiers’ escape to Cameroon ‘tactical manoeuvre’”

    • Hcredo

      The Nigerian army is still under Jonathan. They were contented doing nothing, so was Jonathan. But with Buhari on the way, they know that things won’t be business as usual.

      • Guguru

        Well said.

  • Guguru

    Smoldering Spear,

    Please, come and tutor us some more about how great and mighty Jonathan has become. We need more of your boneless rants and soliloquy. LOL.

    “Neighbouring Cameroon, Chad and Niger have decided to take their fate in their hands and put the terror sect ,Boko Haram, in its place after losing patience with Nigeria on account of its alleged passive handling of the war against the group.

    Consequently, the three countries have launched a regional bid to combat the Boko Haram insurgents whose attacks have spread beyond Nigeria with mounting concerns over federal government’s failure to regain control.

    The three neighbours have opted for a joint military response to the cross-border threat from Boko Haram fighters and have made veiled criticisms of Nigeria, AFP reported yesterday.

    Officially, all four states, whose borders converge at Lake Chad, formed a military alliance due to take shape last November to battle Boko Haram.

    But building a combined Lake Chad force seems to have dropped off the agenda.

    Now the urgency of the situation is such that Nigeria’s partners appear to have finally lost patience and decided to act.

    Cameroon, in particular, has been critical of what it sees as the Nigerian authorities’ passivity in the face of Boko Haram.”

    The Nation, January 2015, “Boko Haram: Cameroun, Chad, Niger lose patience with Jonathan”

    • Wise Head

      You are confused. “Alhaji” Barack Hussein Obama working for Buhari and APC victory in Nigeria blocked all Nigeria’s attempts to procure weapons in Western nations. Even South Africa acting in tune with the “script” scuttled an attempt to buy arms in their country and embarrassed Nigeria before the world, a development widely celebrated by the APC. Now, South Africa is saying they will return the money they seized from Nigeria only to a Buhari govt! It was the last minute decision of Nigeria to buy arms from Russia (which increased America’s anger) that is yielding the present result. It is pathetic that people could be so willingly uninformed due to blind hate.

      • Guguru

        Unwise head,

        Do you mind producing evidence to your fables? You are not credible because you are simply stating that which the voices in your head have forced you to utter in public against your volition. Check your mind again. LOL.

        • Wise Head

          The only thing APC e-rats know is how to insult people. Everything stated in mu comment was widely reported. That America refused to sell arms to Nigeria and blocked their allies from doing so was widely reported. America even gave their reason for the decision. That money meant to buy arms in South Africa was confiscated by the South African govt was widely reported. Just do a little googling and you will be educated. That Nigeria eventually procured arms from Russia and other Eastern countries was reported, so what exactly is the fable here. I sympathise with Nigeria that this bunch of suspicious and grossly unreliable characters called APC will be unleashed on her for the next four years. Lai Mohammed will soon run out of propaganda materials when the bare of fact of Buhari’s incompetence dawns on everyone. Buhari is already warning that he is not a miracle worker — but did he forget this when he was make unrealistic promises like making one dollar equal to one niara and stabilizing oil prices and giving school children one meal a day? In today’s Vanguard, he said that falling oil prices was threatening his agenda. I weep for Nigeria

    Since Buhari “won” the election and power returned to the Hausa/Fulani, it would appear that Imam Shekau is now on his own. No one needs him and his murderous Boko Haram any more because power has returned to where to the “born-to-rule” elements. He appears to be running out of logistics, else, tell me how Boko Haram was able to feed all these hundreds of women and children, if they were not hugely funded by their brothers in politics? Shekau must be wondering why he is suddenly alone, and no one is ready to speak for him again and give him the cash he once got in excess. Those who used bloodshed to acquire power have blood on their hands. They won’t escape judgement.

        Go ahead and separate and stop polluting our space. Please relocate and leave Nigeria no body is forcing you my friend. This is democracy and the people have spoken. We have elected our leader whom we trust and have rejected your incompetent and corrupt leader Jondaft who put Nigeria in this mess. My friend go away we don’t need people like you. Remember what happen in Sudan. the South were blaming the muslim north for all their woes, until they got independent in 2010. Till date there is no peace in the Christian oil rich south. With all their oil, no development only corruption and war lords taking over and trying to embezzle every dime made from oil. No one is talking about development. Meanwhile northern Sudan is doing very well with their agriculture and without oil. Meanwhile for the past 50 years, the South Sudan has been blaming the north for all their woes. Reality has come. Let Nigeria separate that is when you will see greed in the SS. They SS does not like people from the SE, and even at that there are several different ethnic groups from Urhobo to itsekeris, to Efik to Ibibio to Ogoni to Ijaw etc. You think the greedy war lord militants will not hijack it for their personal benefit? Do you know how many billions government pay them every month? How comes they are no longer talking about developments? Go to the creek and se what is happening. I am from there and I will tell you the truth.

        You’re not making any sense. Almost rambling like a mad man in your frustrations. Take am easy o boy. Buhari is good for all of us, we should start thinking of what is good for Nigeria and stop thinking of a person’s tribe or religion. That is really backward village thinking for an intellectual like you.

      U just spoke wat is in my mind. Only that u forgot to mention the chief sponsor, mr goodluck jonathan. He has abandon his boys because they couldnt meet up to d target of cutting d northern almajiris to size, so de cldnt produce those votes dat course his retirement from politics. Also, their activities could not provide him an avenue to stop elections from holding in some northern states dat could have easily paved him a way to manuever his ways back to power. Thats d reason y he got d military so serious now to capture and kill his commander shekau before d almajiri buhari n his aboki friend from faraway Odua kingdom osinbajo comes on board and capture shekau who will reveal his (gej’s) plans. So my friend wise “dull” head just relax n enjoy d movie, its fast coming to an end. Also dnt forget dat almajiris don form government.

        Yeah, Boko Haram couldnt help Jonathan succeed in his agenda, so he might as well take credit for their defeat. Better something than nothing at all.

    Why is President Jonathan wasting our resources fighting Boko Haram, what is Imam Buhari going to when he is sworn in? Jona leave the remaining jihadists for Imam let see how he is going to handle them. Who knows, they may surrender to him since he is their uncle and co-religionist.

      You are forgetting that Buhari does not command the Nigerian army that is now all of a sudden reporting victory after victory, accomplishing more in one month than it could in 6 years. The question any reasonable person would ask is: if the Nigerian army is capable of defeating Boko Haram, why didn’t it do so? What was it waiting for? Are they now trying to save their jobs? what they are now proving is that Boko Haram was condoned and encouraged under Jonathan, but such terrorism will not be condoned under Buhari. Boko Haram started with Jonathan and it will end with Jonathan. He wasn’t the first southern or Christian president to rule Nigeria, but he is certainly the only one to use terrorism and religious devide on his people. But I guess you know all this, and are only trying to divert our attention from the shameful but increasingly apparent truth of the link between Jonathan’s administration and Boko Haram.

    Please otile leave Buhari alone. He has already won the election and there is nothing you can do. Even your Brother jona has left the matter to God. Wait when Buhari takes over you can be pdp opposition leader. But till then be responsible and remember you are a Nigerian.
