Boko Haram on Thursday caught the Army Special Super Camp by surprise at Ngamdu, a border town between Borno and Yobe where Gen. Buratai had relocated to finalize his strategy on ending the activities of the insurgents once and for all.

This daring atta¢k by the insurgents is coming barely 72 hours after the Chief of Army Staff Lt. Gen. Buratai sent a damning message to defeat the insurgents within a very short.

Buratai had at the 2020 Special Easter celebration with the troops at the Camp promised to stay with them until the insurgents are “substantially degraded”.

But the insurgents Thursday lunch a daring atta¢k on the camp even as Gen. Buratai and his officers were currently at the camp apparently mapping out strategies on how to exe¢ute his final blow on the insurgents.

Impeccable sources at the camp who are not authorized to speak with the press revealed that the insurgents came in motor gvn trucks from the south-western side of the camp and opened fir* on the camp.

Other sources also revealed that mortar gvns where lunched in the camp but no fataIity was recorded. Some of the troops were said to have sustained minor lnjuries.

The Nation gathered that Buratai ordered the troops to chase the ranting insurgents away and warned them to focus on a bigger target.

“The Chief of Army Staff told the soldiers to see what happened as a distraction from the main operation that they are going to carryout. But we defended ourselves very well by repelling them,” the source said.

Another source revealed that the insurgents could have been angered by an earlier advance operation that the troops carried out yesterday.

“We suspect it was the advance operation that we carried out yesterday that got them angry and they decided to come to atta¢k us. You know we kiIIed some of their men in the operation and captured others alive so they were angry,” he informed.
