Boko Haram Storms Another Nigerian Army Base Leaving 31 Soldiers Killed, 19 Wounded

A Nigerian Army camp in Borno State was attacked on Thursday by members of the Boko Haram  group in camouflage military uniforms killing at least one officer and 30 soldiers while two officers and 17 soldiers were seriously wounded.


Scores of Boko Haram fighters carried out the attack on the military unit in Zari, a small community north of Maiduguri and near the border with Niger.

They stormed the unit in 12 gun trucks, accompanied by other fighters who came on foot, at about 4:30 p.m. on Thursday.

The details were disclosed to Premium Timesby reliable sources who sought strict anonymity for fears they might be sanctioned by authorities.


The sources said the gallant Nigerian troops initially fought to repel the terrorists but that their effort failed at a point and the insurgents broke into the camp after about an hour of exchange of gunfire.

An unknown number of troops could still not be accounted for as at Saturday morning, their sources said.

A search and rescue operation is currently underway in conjunction with troops from the 145 Battalion.

The wounded officers and men were evacuated to the Nigerian Army 7 Division Medical Services and Hospital in Maiduguri.
