Army Confirms Boko Haram Attack On Base

The Nigerian Army has confirmed an attack on a military base by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect in Yobe State, North-East Nigeria, but maintained that no soldier is missing.

The Nigerian Army in a statement by the Director of Army Public Relations, Brigadier General Texas Chukwu on Monday however, condemned the reports that at least 600 soldiers were missing after the insurgents overran the base.

Brigadier General Chukwu who faulted a report, said the information was capable of misleading the public.

The Army spokesman informed Nigerians that the soldiers promptly repelled the attack while none of them was dead or missing.

“Contrary to the report, the Army wishes to state that, although the base was attacked by suspected Boko Haram insurgents, troops reorganised and successfully repelled the attack and normalcy has since returned to the area. Also, all the troops in the base were accounted for contrary to the report,” he said.
