Why won’t we run for our lives? soldiers and residents flees against Boko Haram invasion in Maiduguri

residents fled in Maiduguri, ozara gossip

The rate at which the Islamist terror group – Boko Haram Members are capturing and taking over the northern cities, is really getting worse, putting fears in the hearts of Nigerians, restricting travelers from visiting or living in most of the Northern States. Even the Nigerian military forces seems to be loosing the battle against the so-called “Boko Haram.” In Maiduguri, Tuesday 8th September, 2014. it appeared as if the army had given up, with soldiers deserting and residents fleeing the towns and villages.

One of the residents, last night said he was awake and heard gun shots from a distance. “Nobody could sleep anymore,”residents left with no hope

They arrived in hijacked army vehicles, fight off the Nigerian troops and terrorize the residents. “Boko Haram are committing all kinds of atrocities killing and raping. At the same time they are taking young girls in batches and the city is littered with dead bodies,” said – Senator Ahmed Zanna. Bama is just 70 kilometers (43.5 miles) from Maiduguri and fell to the Islamists four days ago. Zanna recounts how the soldiers who were supposed to defend Bama, refused to advance any further, noting, “They were ill equipped and they just stayed in Kondudga.”

Maiduguri would be a major win for Boko Haram in their hope of creating an Islamist-ruled state. “Even a brief capture of Borno’s capital, will be a significant symbolic victory for Boko Haram,” said Ryan Cummings, a South African security expert, who is also a member of the Nigerian Security Networks. He added, With Maiduguri, the Islamists would not only control a major city but also an international airport.

Terrorists are better equipped — Military

The morale of the government troops is very low and the terrorists are better equipped. Military officers said: “We cannot do anything against Boko Haram, because most of the Boko Haram are using modern automatic weapons and the military is using AK47s.”
