Officers of the Nigerian Army have
released a video lamenting the deaths from the attack of the Metele base by the terrorist sect Boko Haram.
Over a hundred army officers were
reported dead after the terrorist raided the base in Borno State, burning it down with arms inside.
Although the Nigerian Army released an official statement saying “several social media, print and online publications have been brandishing false casualty figures,” officers in the video insist over 100 were indeed killed.
In a transcript of the video shared
by AFP, the officers lamented the absence of weapons. They said:
No less than 100 plus soldiers died here. Many are missing in action, they are nowhere to be found.
See the weapons they bring here. These are not working. These are outdated vehicles, they are not working. They just keep them here for formality. Imagine, they are killing us every day. The situation is getting worse.
