There are reports that suspected members of Boko Haram have invaded a military base of ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’ in Borno killing three soldiers.
According to a report by Vanguard Newspaper, the terrorists invaded the camp situated in Kamuya village of Buratai ward of Biu Local Government Area of Borno state.
The members of the terrorist sect reportedly sacked the soldiers at their duty post and carted away arms and ammunitions in the camp, which is 6 kilometres to Buratai, the ancestral home of the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Tukur Buratai.
The incident according to sources took place on Wednesday, but due to lack of telecommunication network in the area, as it was hitherto vandalized by the sect, the information had to be delayed before reaching the press.
“There was a bloody attack on a military camp in Kamuya by suspected terrorists on Wednesday. The attackers first succeeded in sacking the soldiers at their duty post, after which, they invaded the camp and carted away with huge arms and ammunitions.
“It was also gathered that three soldiers were feared dead with the setting ablaze of the entire camp,” a source reportedly said.
The military authority are yet to issue any statement on the reported attack.
