      Wow, to see footage of our soldiers marching into battle is really spirit lifting, how can you not have the utmost respect for the profession these humans have chosen; To lay down their lives for the freedom of Nigeria and her citizens is no small feat. Naija, we hail thee.

    I thought Bama has long been reclaimed,

    With the main body of the assault force advancing from Biu-to-Dambao with the armour (T-72 tanks, et Al). A main staging area should be setup in the main city of Maiduguri, the main road connecting the three cities will ease logistics and enable rapid reinforcements.

    N’djamena have a main road linking Limani. A strong force composed of infantry and armor should be stacked along that route, this should stop any runner from escaping and finding safe have in Chad. N’djamena (the capital) is near this area and Chadian Government will want to actively participate on this assault. The Nigerian Government should not hesitate to give them permission. This is everybody’s war now.
    Since Chadian STRONG forces holding Limani and Possible advancing into Nigeria and Holding Backi too. This should provide the anvil in the offensive.

    We should not forget to fortify Baga because the distance between Maiduguri and Baga is huge. , then
    hammer-and-anvilling towards the center of the (Baga), This would weaken and rout the entire enemy flank, leaving the remaining forces to run down the scattering enemies.

    The NAF should provide quick scouting and recon at all times. They have the assets now.

    Dikwa is closer to N’djamena, I do not know which force holds Dikwa now, friendly or foe but Dikwa is key. The rear or Dikwa is swampy, it will make traversing of armor and tactical maneuvers very difficult. I’ll suggest lighter vehicles should be used probably tracked vehicles.

    All this will work seamless if Yobe (Damaturu) axis have been fortified by now. This is where capture and hold comes in play.

    I reckon by now all surveillance and intelligence has been gathered. I expect the terrorists will try to mingle with the populations (as usual).
    The NAF should be reachable at all time to handle the enemy armor (probably non-existent by now).

    Gentlemen I reckon we’re seeing the climax of this war.

    N.B: the NA should watch out for IEDs.

      He probably made the video before the bama recapture.Or the video production took some time. It seems he just posted it.

    • Augustine says:

      Oga trigger thanks for your comment and some hints on the terrain.

      However, I do NOT agree with you that this is everybody’s war, Nigeria is responsible for it’s own survival, don’t put hopes on Chad as it they are our twin brothers. I would rather trust Benin Republique than Chad, Cameroon, Niger Republique .

      You say Nigeria should grant permission to Chad do help stop escapee Bokos? What? Why? Let Chad sleep at the border while we export to them the remnants of Boko Haram that we imported from them against our wish.

      Nigeria lost over 40 towns and over 6,000 civilians killed, to an illiterate man’s caliphate when the real terror was unleashed upon Nigeria from Chad, Niger, Cameroon in 2013 when Boko Haram smuggled black market purchased 14.5 mm and 23 mm anti-aircraft guns mounted on Toyotas from Libya, Sudan, Central African Republic and Chad itself.
      That was the beginning of our great fall as a nation in the NE.

      The ex-foreign minister of Chad Sheik Umar has confessed that truth of weapons trade and smuggling in his video interview on France24. He also said the Chadian government never cared about the danger and death flowing into Nigeria from Chad until the repercussions came upon the economy of Chad when civilian trade routes were blocked by Boko war and Chad is a land locked country with no ocean access except through Nigeria and Cameroon bringing trade up to the northern trade routes from our own sea ports.

      That is the Chad you say Nigeria should grant more permission to enter Nigerian territory for combat? Enough is Enough o ! Please oga mi, once bitten twice shy, Nigeria should not keep on carrying over and resitting the same exam and failing at it all the time, enough painful lessons from Chad & Company, MD/CEO Idriss Deby.

    Good work oga mcshegz and oga beegz. America and her hatred of Nigeria. Always finding ways to smear our military. Imagine an article “allegedly” written by them that Service chiefs were given info of chibok girls but it was spilled to bh by them. I just stumbled on that article on NL. GOODAFTERNOON Oga Beegs and other Ogas in the house.

    • sabatino9 says:

      do we now have the V22 Osprey in service?

      • Obix says:

        Oga Sabatino, definitely no! Only the US services use the Osprey. I guess our soldier took this picture in the US.

      • Are James says:

        Of course NOT.

      • majorohis says:

        I know Nigeria does not have any Osprey, it is also interesting to see this officer too…. because while you are on any US base you are required to wear a rank that reflects the country you are visiting rank structure. Most international military student wear it on their chest, some on their lapel. (this is done so you get the respect due to you when you are there) one more time…..interesting picture.

  7. beegeagle says:

    lol…no such.

    V22 Osprey? Dem tief am? We cant even get a ‘thirdhand’ Cobra helo is it V22s which will be in the loop?

    That Colonel was probably on a course in the USA or he was at the exercise in Chad. We neither own B52s nor V22s.

    • kolawole says:

      hi mr beegeagle…can i help you connect your blog to twitter and facebokk so that when you post it will show on twitter and facebook simultaneously…what do you think..cause your twitter handle is not looking cool at all

      • beegeagle says:

        For two years now, every story posted here has appeared as banner headlines of TWITTER and FACEBOOK. Ask RUGGED7, BIGBROVAR and AKIN OGES

      • rugged7 says:

        Oga Kolawole, e dey online…
        Beegs dey try. E no easy to run all this stuff sans funding.
        But i guess what u mean is like an avatar for Beegs handle online to pimp it up a bit.
        Maybe Beegs is being cautious on to copyright infringement.
        I guess an eagle as an avatar on Beegs twitter handle won’t be a bad idea.

  8. colloid says:

    Hahahahaha…. CHHAAADDDDDDDDDD!!! I hail you ooo. Your lie pass that of absalom. BBC/CNN/AJZEERA, una see your life? This is one reason why Chad should be check-mate in this war. They are MAINLY the fuel for the rise of BH. Weapons from libya to BH came through their border to ours. One of their president aide was caught with SAM meant for these scumbags. Now, they have “Embedded” LIE into their so called “ALMIGHTY POWER”. Hahhhahahahah. Chad really make my day with this their lie busted.

  9. Oje says:

    Oga Colloid God go bless you for that point you make. It sounds incredulous and because it does many here will rather dig their head in the sand and wish it away, forgetting you can only keep your head in the sand for so long, you must resurface and when that happens you discover the problem either hasn’t moved an inch or has gotten worse.

    Make no mistake, i love my country, but its hard to see how Nigeria thinks we can win this war with foreign boots on Nigerian soil. Trust me Chad is acting as a proxy for Frances maskirova to take care of this anglo giant forever. We must disband the MNJTF or whatever misnomer they choose to call it and fight this war alone on our own terms. Why are we wasting time allowing Boko Haram and ISIS to integrate thereby creating a new front. The illusion of Chadian superpowerdome is what Idris Derby needs to placate the Chadian people and give them something to cheer about. Kick the Chadians and their propaganda manipulators out of Nigeria and watch Boko Haram burn.

  10. Saleh says:

    if i have my way chad wont be operating with Nigeria,

  11. beegeagle says:

    With the world concretely seeing that the Chadian role is limited to the liberation of Gamboru and Dikwa and the joint liberation of Malam Fatori with Niger troops in tow, I can feel the propaganda binge abating. No proof of further involvement elsewhere. That was why the switched the spin to mercenaries.

    Keep CHAD out of our noses. They are just self-aggrandising attention cravers. They even now need help to liberate the desert fringe town of Damasak after an unsuccessful joint effort with troops from Niger.

    Meanwhile, BH are being obliterated in the Bama district by Nigerian troops.

    Oga Augustine, can you provide a link to the video of the interview of the ex-foreign minister of Chad with France24? I am very interested.

    REPLY

    • Kola Adekola says:

      Thanks so much Oga Augustine. That was really informative.
      Damn! So Chad has long had intelligence that boko haram was buying weapons not only in Chad, but also using Chad as a conduit for weapons they had purchased in CAR, Sudan and Libya!
      The fact that boko haram has a lot of Chadian commanders just closes the loop.
