Again, 300 Nigerian Soldiers “Maneuvers” to Cameroon After Boko Haram Invaded Mubi
More details have continued to emerge on how Nigerian troops fled Mubi, the second largest city in Borno State, following the attack of the Boko Haram insurgents group a few days ago.
According to report, at least 300 Nigerian soldiers fled to Cameroon when the insurgents stormed the town.
According to sources, the Nigerian soldiers fled the north-eastern part of Nigeria, where the insurgency launched by the sect was raging, and crossed the Nigeria-Cameroon border.
A senior Cameroonian military officer confirmed that the fleeing soldiers who would be moved away from the border areas to more secure locations, where they would be disarmed, fed and eventually repatriated to Nigeria are mostly around Boucla village in Bourha sub-division.
“So far, we can estimate the number of arrivals to be at about 300. These are the ones who arrived in uniform but we know that there are several others who shed their uniforms for civilian attires.”
It was further learnt that Cameroon had begun screening of deserters and refugees to prevent infiltration by insurgents.
“This time around, we are conducting a more thorough screening to avoid letting in Boko Haram infiltrators, who are known to inhabit the ranks of the Nigerian military,” an official of the Cameroonian government had said.
