Some soldiers were dislodged when the Islamic State in West Africa (ISWA), a faction of Boko Haram sect, invaded Gudumbali, Guzamala local government area of Borno state, on Friday.

Channels Television quoted a resident as saying the attackers looted food items and carted away gun trucks belonging to the Nigerian army.

It is the third time in three months that the village will come under attack.

It was gathered that some of the soldiers affected in the operation are currently taking refuge at a military location in Damasak, a nearby town.

“Our troops have been dislodged in Gudumbali, and even Kukawa,” one of the soldiers in the theatre command told TheCable on Sunday morning.

While the military said it has intensified efforts to end the attacks, Abubakar Elkanemi, shehu of Borno, recently said the people of the state are still under the insurgents’ siege.

“Nobody can dare move out of Maiduguri by 10 kilometres without being confronted, attacked by Boko Haram,” he had said when President Muhammadu Buhari visited last month.

“Quite a number of farmers are being killed and kidnapped on a daily basis around Molai General Area, which is just 10 kilometres away from the metropolis, along Maiduguri -Damboa -Biu road.”

  1. What type of soldiers is Nigeria having? Running away leaving their trucks and ammunition for the enemy to get away with. I have said it that it is better we organise our Boy Scouts to fight this Book Haram than to continue depends on these crash program trained soldiers.
