VIDEO: Nigerian Soldiers And Civilians Fleeing Boko Haram in Adamawa
Captured by a resident of Mubi Junction, Adamawa State fleeing Boko Haram Monday, exclusive video has surfaced showing Nigerian soldiers and civilians fleeing a massive Boko Haram attack in Michika.
The incident comes after a string of attacks by the deadly sect, who has attempted to establish an Islamic state in northeast Nigeria. The Nigerian army has struggled to contain the increasingly aggressive attacks, the most recent of which occurred yesterday in Mubi, and left 24 dead and many, including former president Obasanjo’s son, Lt. Col. Adeboye Obasanjo, gravely wounded. The militants also took an armored tank in the attack.
Speaking to Premium Times journalists yesterday via phone, a man who claimed to be a Boko Haram spokesperson alleged that the sect had taken Bama, Michika, and Mubi Junction, contrary to military reports.
“This is a rebuttal from the information dissemination and sensitization unit of the Jamaatul Ahlil Sunna Lidawati Wal Jihad (Boko Haram) on the series of lies that the Nigeria military have been feeding the world on our recent conquests. Let the whole world know that we are on the path of victory because up to this minute, the town of Bama is under our control, the whole of Michika is now in our hands, as well as Manalapan (Junction of) Mubi is now fully under our control,” the spokesman said.
Nigerian Defence Headquarters, while confirming counter-terrorism activity in Mubi on their Twitter account (@DefenceInfoNG) yesterday, did not offer further information about the alleged capture of Mubi and Michika.
