OPERATION LAFIYA DOLE: Air Task Force Destroys Boko Haram Terrorists’ Gun-Trucks, Neutralizes Several Insurgents at Mainok in Borno State "Boko Haram terrorists have a hard time understanding the jig is up. After losing hundreds of fighters in recent weeks, some Boko Haram commanders figured it was a good idea to attack an army base. The attack underscored the illusion of Boko Haram commanders. Boko Haram insurgents attacked the base in their classic style. Dozens of fighters attacked from four points simultaneously, firing mortars and RPGs, hoping to overwhelm the defenders and overrun the base. Remember this was the same tactics used in their attack on the Gudun Bali base last Friday. The Nigerian army was not gonna fall for this again. They allowed the insurgents close in on the base before engaging. Call for aerial support was delayed to give the attackers a false sense of security. Nigerian troops reinforced the base with orders not to fire their weapons and reveal their position. It must have felt too easy because the wary insurgents attempted to set up a defensive perimeter in a village called Arkuma but changed their mind. Turns out the insurgents had been firing on mostly empty structure all along. Nigerian troops opened fire from well concealed positions up close, making their RPGs useless. In their confusion the insurgents attempted to fight their way out the ambush but were picked apart. At 6pm seeing the battle was lost, the insurgents attempted to salvage defeat by attacking the village of arkuma. They mounted on 15 trucks and and approached the village from different directions simultaneously to wreak havoc. This was when helicopter gunships swooped low and made minced meat of the convoy. Many of them who survived the strike and ran towards the village on foot were cut down by snipers." Nigeria shall not be terrified by terror! Nigeria will definitely prevail!!!
