The Nigerian Army has denied reports that about 105 soldiers, who were fighting the war against Boko Haram terrorists, met their untimely death, when they failed to return in a bid to annihilate the terrorists on Wednesday November 18, 2015 in Gudunbali, Borno.
According to Vanguard reports, the Chief of Army staff, Lt. General Tukur Buratai has waved aside such reports claiming that the media had been misinformed with news that about 100 Nigerian soldiers were missing after Boko Haram attacks in the battle ground.
In a phone chat with the online publication, Buratai said: “It is not true that our soldiers are missing. The soldiers went on a mission for the Nigerian nation and they have since returned and joined their Battalions”.
According to him, the report is a figment of imagination of the authors of the story.
Media reports had indicated that the Army may have lost about 150 of its men to an attack by Boko Haram insurgents in Gudunbali, Borno State.
