A new video has just surfaced online which shows a battalion of Nigerian soldiers in a terrifying gun battle with the terrorist group Boko Haram.
From the clip shared (first by Zetbra), the officers are heard yelling out orders and updates of their ambush in Pidgin English.
“That one don die na, that one don die,” one soldier says.
“No, he never die! He never die!” Another says.
“Ok, under that tree…under that tree. Ok see am, see am!” The first soldier affirms as the piercing sounds of their gun battle rips the air.
This comes just hours after the Nigerian Army reported how they foiled a planned suicide attack by the Islamist sect, resulting in the death of eight suicide bombers in Borno State.
Speaking with newsmen on Tuesday, the acting Director, Army Public Relations Unit, Col. Sani Usman, said:
The troops of Operation Lafiya Dole at a checkpoint in Gubio, Gubio Local Government Area of Borno State at about 9.15am today, foiled a suicide attack on Gubio town by eight Boko Haram terrorists,” the statement read.
The suicide bombers, who came in a Bedford van loaded with Improvised Explosive Devices, attempted to force their way through the checkpoint but met a stiff resistance from troops, who insisted that the vehicle must be thoroughly checked. The suicide bombers refused and blew up themselves by detonating one of the suicide vests, killing all the eight Boko Haram terrorists in the van.
