Questions We Should Ask After Over 30 Soldiers Were Recently Killed By Boko Haram Terrorists

According to reports we gathered from Vanguard Newspaper, not less than 30 gallant Nigerian soldiers were killed by Bokoharam terrorists on Friday, in Borno State.

The sad incident reportedly happened between Marte-Dikwa council areas as military troops who were given a pass to go and visit their families and loved ones after they have spent some time at the battlefield fighting the insurgents, was ambushed by ISWAP linked Bokoharam terrorists, killing dozens of them and leaving others injured.

Just as this news is a sad and shocking one, it also calls for a lot of questions to be asked, because less than a week ago, over 8000 Bokoharam terrorists reportedly surrendered their arms to the Nigerian Army.

Two questions we should ask:

In the report we obtained, the over 30 soldiers that were ambushed and killed by Bokoharam terrorists, were said to be on a pass. They were therefore leaving the theatre of battle, to go and visit their loved ones.

How then did the Bokoharam terrorists know about their movements on that very day?

Was it a coincidence that they were ambushed, attacked with rocket launchers, and killed, or did someone tip them off concerning the time they will be moving, and the route they will be taking?

In my opinion, we should ask these questions when incidences like this happen. This is because it will not only help us trace the mastermind of the attack, but it will also help to prevent future occurrences.

Having stated this, we hope that the Nigerian army will launch an investigation on the attack as soon as possible, even as we keep faith with our gallant soldiers whose efforts have been commendable thus far.

What are your thoughts on this? Feel free to share with us.
