Lt.-Gen. Faruk Yahaya, commended the troopsâ€™ commitment and decisive operations against the terrorists
Troopsâ€™ fighting spirit remains very high in spite of the nefarious activities of some local informants who often tip the Boko Haram/ISWAP terrorists on troopsâ€™ movements and positions
And thankfully, the women said yes.
The troopsâ€™ first batch was formally received on Wednesday by Governor Nasir El-Rufai at their Kakau base on the highway.
â€œDamboa attack was carried out by a repentant Boko Haram member.â€ - Dume
The vigilant troops sighted and neutralized the lone female suicide bomber before she could detonate her vest.
He commended the leadership and the entire men and women of the Nigerian Army for their resilience despite the numerous challenges
While 356 of the soldiers were said to have cited loss of interest, 24 cited â€œto take a traditional title.â€
The attack comes three days after the deaths of three soldiers in the state's Damasak district.
Security operatives have reportedly retreated to Sector 3 headquarters where they reinforced themselves.
The soldiers cried out to be ambushed by the terrorists of Boko Haram while they screamed, "Buratai e no go better for you."
The inspiring pictures have made so many Nigerians offer thumps up for the Nigerian Soldiers.
