According to Premium Times, T-72 battle tank, 105 soldiers, two officers, (including the CO – commanding officer), eight vehicles, a truck loaded with 60,000 rounds of AA ammunition and three artillery pieces were captured by Boko Haram.

When Colonel Sani Usman, the spokesperson for the Nigerian Army was reached out for comment via telephone, he said the military is now organizing a counter-attack –

“I want to confirm the incidence at Gudunbali … the unit attacked is within the area of responsibility of the MNJTF and troops are now organising to counter the attack.”

Meanwhile, #BringBackOurSoldiers is now trending on Twitter with Nigerians calling on President Muhammadu Buhari to rather be Minister of Defence, not Petroleum, saying that Nigeria’s greatest problem now is insecurity, not crude oil.
