The troops of 26 and 28 Task Force Brigades repelled an early morning daring attack by fleeing Boko Haram terrorists on military locations at Pulka and Bitta on the fringes of Sambisa forest of Borno State.

The Director of Army Public Relations (DAPR), Col. Sani Usman, said that the troops of 114 Task Force Battalion were on Tuesday attacked by the Boko Haram terrorists.

According to Usman, the Nigerian forces came under a three-pronged attack by terrorists fanning out of Sambisa forest from the Damboa, Tokumbere and Pulka axis.

He said that “two Boko Haram insurgents paid for their atrocities with their lives while several others sustained gun shot injuries”, at the end of the fighting.

“The fate that befell those that attacked Pulka was more dreadful.”

    This is beginning to look and sound like kindergarten bulletins. How can a fleeing enemy attack army formations? Where were they fleeing to, and if they were under pressure to flee, how could they have the logistics and audacity to attack the Army, instead of fleeing? They paid with their lives? Really, what were they supposed to pay with? Cows, killishi or Danbo Nama? And what fate befell those at Pulka? A fate worse than death?
    The whole thing is becoming a big farce. Just admit they are technically resurgent and then technically defeat them again, until they technically disappear.

    God help them to keep up the galantry.
