The Nigerian Army has debunked the purported rumour/reports that over 100 soldiers ran away after Boko Haram attacked Marte and Dikwa, in Borno State.

In regards to this rumour, the Nigerian Army has stated clearly that soldiers didn't run away from Boko Haram, as many reports rumoured.

According to the report on Vanguard, the Nigerian Army disclosed this in a statement signed by Mohammed Yerima, Brigadier General, Director Army Public Relations. The statement faulted the rumour and described the story as false, unfounded and an attempt to malign the image and character of the Nigerian Army.

In the statement, the Army said “The attention of the Nigerian Army has been drawn to a reports alleging that over 100 Nigerian soldiers were reported to have absconded after Boko Haram attacks on Marte and Dikwa. This report is false, unfounded and an attempt to malign the image and character of the Nigerian Army."

While explaining what really happened, the Nigerian Army said the headcount of the soldiers in the affected area were not properly done in respect to the available equipment, but the affected soldiers have returned to their duty posts, and are currently dislodging the Boko Haram in the affected places.

The Army therefore urge the public to disregard the initial rumour as the Nigerian soldiers are always gallant and determined to flushing the terrorists until they become things of the past.
