In response to demands of Nigerians for
some evidence to support the complete
routing of insurgents who attempted to
capture Konduga on Friday, September
13, 2014 the Nigerian military has
released some pictures from the battle
However, in deference to sensibilities of
Nigerians, pictures that may offend the
senses were not included.
PRNigeria was told that the pictures
were released only for the purpose of
reassuring our compatriots that the
military is capable and ready to defend
It could be recalled that after about
three hours of fierce fighting yesterday,
Nigerian troops routed the Boko Haram
fighting force of over a hundred
Further to the staggering loss of men,
Boko Haram also suffered extensive
losses in their equipment.
In a previous statement by Colonel
Timothy Antigha of Army Public
Relations Directorate three Hilux and
one Buffalo vehicles with mounted Anti-
aircraft guns, three General Purpose
Machine guns, over 30 AK 47 rifles and
two global positioning systems have
been recovered among other items.
Four Nigerian soldiers were wounded in
action. The entire area is still being
combed for terrorists who may have
escaped with bullet wounds.
Morale of Nigerian troops remains very
high according to the military sources
