    #NeverAgain would Nigerians have to spill our blood without just cause. #FreeSambisa and proceed to #ArmNigeria to the teeth should be the driver of every FG action for now.

  2. ugobassey says:

    Well done NA and NAF, well done FG. My only plea is please take Gwoza now! lets not forget that it ws at Gwoza Shekaru declared a Caliphate. Last year we also had BH on the run and we stopped short at Gwoza and gave them time to regroup and re-launch. This time please lets not stop till Gwoza and Sambisa is completely liberated.

    Please see video of Boko Haram members captured alive by Chadian Army been horsed wiped and lashed publicly in the desert NE.

    • ozed says:

      Wow!! i thought the Chadian Military does not maltreat prisoners. Or has the US Government not seen this video?

      • tbite says:

        maybe they are having problems with their internet connection.😛

      • rugged7 says:

        The U.S says the chadians are “battle-hardened angels”…
        Na only Nigeria sabi do human rights abuse. No mind all these western propagandists

  4. odion777 says:

    Good to know Bama has been liberated now, BH have got left 3 local government under their control, the NA can now move all required Artillery and tools towards those 3 remaining local government and also with NA strategic pounding of Gwoza etc.

    • sazulu says:

      Merely pounding Gwoza won’t do the trick, in fact this could facilitate their escape. A well coordinated attack to take them by surprise would achieve better results.

      • ozed says:

        If ever any assault should be preceded with a nighttime heliborne infantry strike, i think that this is it.

        This would maximize the surprise element and seize strong points like high ground from where the enemy could direct fire against advancing troops. Just before dawn the land armored columns would drive through and seize the key objectives and infantry would commence mopping up.

        Na wa!! To cook sweet soup easy well well for mouth. LOLZ

      • sazulu says:

        My brother, I tell you o, e no easy at all.

  5. Sir Kay says:

    One thing i noticed recently from vids and pics is that boko haram members are now somewhat clean shaved. Is this so they can blend in to civilian population once their hideout gets too hot? Before they often have beard.

    • Capt Tobias Wilcock says:

      Sir Kay, a very important observation,The Steam roller is on and crushing all that obstructs or opposes it, The Asymmetric cycle dictates that this guys are going to opt to blend into the populace rather than fight, we the hope of making a come back or that foreign assistance would come, Hence this is the hour that the CJTF , NPF, DSS, Local Government security apparatus,Local Hunters, Civil defense force must come into play, all returning BH members would be easily identified by their neighbors or community as being absent for a while and returning “not” be any coincident after BH bases are being destroyed, this is the only way we can stop this guys for good. We must also open a channel of asking them to turn themselves in , this way we can neutralize the effect of reluctant sleeper cells and get crucial intel to put others out of commission. We do not want a repeat of this insurgency anytime down the road. I honestly believe that are not entirely stupid tactic-wise and we must never underestimate the most foolish enemy. Now is the time to fully utilize the Civil security apparatus available before they blend into the civil populace. it is impossible to entirely surround their enclaves enough to prevent a few from getting away, There must be synergy between the military and civilian security apparatus now, before and during the final assaults on Gwoza and other major battles, definitely not after, the net should be spread before you drive fishes into it.
      “Never again”, means we should not let them have an opportunity to regroup as a fighting force or urban terrorist. Bravo to the Nigerian Military, CJTF, Hunters, NAF and all who have played their part including the Eagle (Beegeagle) himself and everyone of his Sir Knights of the electronic table.

  6. jimmy says:

    You are getting the Idea.The Nigerian Army should take their time to plan appropriately. Theyhavea lot of resources at their disposal that they didnot last year during the failed assault. Last year all roads leading to Gwoza were not surrounded by the NA this year they are.The question is wil the shecow fight to the death or run like a little girl but to where.Cameroon has withdrawn the unofficial map, Chad most def wants him dead because dead men tell no tales.

    • Augustine says:

      Oga jimmy, I think same way too about Chad, I think Idris Debby wants Shekau III killed to avoid the revelation of the Chadian connection to Boko Haram.

      The DG of NIA has already said he approached Chad last year or so to join us in defeating Boko Haram, but the reply to him in Chad was…”Boko Haram is your Nigerian problem.”

      So far no sign of Chibok girls, maybe they are Shekau’a close shield and hopeful final negotiation tool….if the war ends and we don’t see the girls, it means they are not in Nigeria and have disappeared forever only to reappear individually in future by the miracle of being able to escape from slavery in foreign lands.

      • rka says:

        I think the girls have probably been distributed in batches to foreign lands in the main with maybe a few left as humans shields/negotiating tool.

        It may turn into a stand-off with very difficult decisions to be made by the GOC of the operation.

  7. Augustine says:

    Thank you Nigerian military for the Bama victory, 10 more days to elections, please plan well and fight well, we need a totally free Nigeria for our democracy to thrive.

    God be with you all NA + NAF + NPF + CJTF

  8. rka says:

    Oga Beeg, I quite enjoyed you having a go at Jeroen Van den Bosch on twitter. All these armchair specialists are really up themselves.

  9. Oje says:

    Where is the useless Amnesty International to cry for the human rights of these murderers? Perhaps soon Chad will be sanctioned by Obama for Human rights violation? It disgusts me to see what Obama have turned the United States of America into. What is the rational for sanctioning Nigeria, the worlds 4th biggest democracy, a democracy modeled after the United States in itself over human rights and then going next door to publicly arm and support two of Africa’s longest serving dictators. One (Paul Biya) has ruled for 35 years, the other (Idris Derby) is on course to take the number one spot having ruled for 26 years.

    • Are James says:

      This is a very correct observation you have just made. A great many of these kids are jobless Nigerian youths coerced into terrorist actions, mist of the zealots amongst them would be dead. Terrorists deserve very harsh treatment but there are limits. Why the whole world is keeping quiet at this one is still befuddling to me.

    • G8T Nigeria says:

      Thank you. Interest rules the world.

    • rugged7 says:

      Western government and media hypocrisy is breath-taking my brother.
      The people will lie through their teeth, and blatantly too..

    • Sir Kay says:

      That’s what i just said. I noticed they not shave, before dead and captured bokos mostly have beards, now no more. And reason for that could be to blend into civilian populations.

  11. rugged7 says:

    This senator Zanna chap is a clear boko haram sponsor with his bbc cohorts.
    According to him, boko haram is everywhere in maiduguri and IDPs should not return to Bama and the chadians took bama from dikwa axis while Nigerian troops were held up at konduga and that axis by boko haram….
    Why can’t we just dash this chap one bullet and be done with???

    http://www.naij.com/404583-67-year-old-boko-haram-escapee-recounts-ordeal.html. I’m sure many must have seen this article! When this is over, many shocking things should be revealed! Who are these Arabs and Caucasians? Could they be CIA or French covert operatives, like what happened in Zaire and Afghanistan in the 70s and 80s? What baffles me are the helicopters that deliver eqipment and goods to these people in plain sight! How possible is it that unaccounted helicopters can fly into our airspace unchallenged and supply BokoHaram? Sometime last year during the setbacks of the COIN, it was all over the news of helicopters dropping supplies for Boko Haram even during the period Fulani herdsmen were on a rampage in Taraba, Nassarawa and Benue! When some villages in Benue were sacked by these herdsmen and Governor Suswam’s convoy was attacked, there were reports of helicopters flying in with men in camoflague and supplies to the Fulani herdsmen! So many questions sha…..

    • ozed says:

      Well dont know what to believe. However, when you consider that some parties predicted our national collapse for 2015, and the same parties have done everything to frustrate all our efforts at resisting Boko haram, one cannot be too careful.

    • Sir Kay says:

      So the stranger, according to the story in that link, woke the old woman up, and her daughter and led them to safety.
      May i ask, what ever happened to the Grand daughter? 3 people became 2, that’s a weird story, none the less, it might be true, i don’t know.
