Boko Haram: How we captured camp zero – Soldier

A soldier, who participated in the capturing of camp zero in Sambisa Forest, which is believed to be Boko Haram stronghold on Tuesday said, the camp was virtually empty when troops moved in after several days of battle with the Boko Haram militants.

The soldier, who was not authorize to speak to the press told DAILY POST that, they had fought the militants for days without having any headway, adding that, the militants had been firing for almost a whole day while troops had to seize fire and waited for reinforcement for two days.

“By the time we were ready to make an inroad into the camp, they had already destroyed the camp and fled. We found a wounded terrorist, who strap himself with an IED. He was heaping abuses on us, we kept a distance from him knowing he could be dangerous and after abusing us and knowing he had no chances of escape, detonated the IED to end his life,” the Soldier said.

He said, while he was abusing them and the government, he told them that, Allah had given them victory over the Nigerian troops and every terrorist killed in the war had huge rewards from Allah.

” He said, ‘my brothers (Fleeing Terrorists) are brave warriors of Allah. We will continue to fight you infidels to the last of you. We have defeated you and victory is ours, by the will of Allah, ” the soldier added.

Asked if during the fighting they were able to get close to where the leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau is or whether they were able to locate the location of the rest of the Chibok girls, he said, there was no places conquered that they found traces of Shekau or the Chibok girls.

“I do not think Shekau is with the Chibok girls. What we believe is that, he (Shekau) is moving along with some of his finest fighters while the Chibok girls are moving along with some of the top commanders of Boko Haram. Those ones, we have not come in contact with yet. “
