Nigeria army laments about Boko Haram attacks 


The chief of army staff, Lt Gen Tukur Buratai has lamented about recents attacks on Nigerian Army by Boko Haram terrorist.
The COAS also revealed that the terrorists now use drones and foreign fighters in their operations.

“In the last two to three months, we have noticed daring moves by the terrorists, increased use of drones against our defensive positions and infusion of foreign fighters in their ranks. These potent threats require us to continually review our operations,” he said.

Buratai, while describing the activities of the terrorists as “daring,” said it threatened to erode the previously recorded achievements in the counter-terrorism efforts.
Boko Haram insurgents have carried out successful, back-to-back attacks on Nigerian military bases since July, leaving heavy personnel and equipment losses in their wake the recent being that of 157 strike force battalion in Metele.


He said the attacks have put the military’s resolve to test, but assured that the insurgency would be uprooted before long.

“Since 2015, the Nigerian Army, in conjunction with sister services and other security agencies have systematically degraded the capabilities and capacity of Boko Haram terrorists and many successes were achieved.

“However, in the last two to three months, we have noticed daring moves by the terrorists, increased use of drones against our defensive positions and infusion of foreign fighters in their ranks. These potent threats require us to continually review our operations.”
