Some of the 480 Runaway Soldiers Return From Cameroon in Tattered Uniforms

6 years ago



Some of the Nigerian soldiers that ran off to Cameroon during a battle with the Boko Haram terrorists have returned.

Residents in Adamawa have said they spotted the soldiers wearing gloomy expressions and tattered uniforms in Mubi town, early in the morning.

A resident, Joseph Baba, said “we saw some of them purchasing second hand clothes at the Mubi main market”.

‘’Initially, we were afraid. People panicked when we sighted the troops. They arrived in the wee hours and people began to scamper for safety because no one knew their mission.

I even thought they were Boko Haram disguised in military uniform as the insurgents usually do,” Mr. Baba said.

Nigerian soldiers on the battle field often complain about being under equipped to face Boko Haram insurgents. On Monday, the soldiers retreated and sought refuge in Cameroon in what the military authorities later described as tactical manoeuvre.

The spokesperson for the Defence Headquarters, Chris Olukolade, could not be reached Tuesday to confirm the return of the soldiers. He did not answer or return calls.
