Boko Haram Attacked Us With Suicide Mission, Used 50 liters of IEDs - Nigerian Army

By SaharaReporters, New York

The army authorities at the 1st Division Nigerian Army, Kaduna, says that the Boko Haram suicide bombers that attacked the Nigerian Army base today waged the attack with Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) concealed in a 50 liter container.


The army’s statement, “Failed Suicide Attack on Headquarters 1 Division Nigerian Army,” which has just been issued, confirms Saharareporters story earlier today that the attack was carried out by suicide bombers.



In the statement, signed by the Assistant Director in charge of Army Public Relations, Lt.Col. Abubaka Edun, the Army stated the sequence of events as follows, “At about 1218pm on Tuesday 7th February 2012, a failed suicide bomb attempt was made on the Headquarters Complex of 1 Division Nigerian Army Kawo, Kaduna. The 2 suicide bombers came in two vehicles, a Sienna Toyota Space Bus and a Honda Accord. The drivers of the two vehicles overran the security post and the lawn leading to the Headquarters complex. One of the vehicles (Toyota Sienna Space Bus) exploded by the Car Park directly in front of the Headquarters, when a soldier opened fire on the car after the attacker refused to stop which made him loose control of the vehicle.



“The second vehicle which did not explode (Honda Accord) was loaded with 10 numbers of 20 liters of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), 4 numbers of 30 liters loaded with IEDs and 2 numbers of large peak milk containers also loaded with IEDs. The suicide bomber in the Toyota Sienna Space Bus died in the attempt, while there was no casualty on the part of (our) own troops.”


The statement did not reveal the nature of attacks on the Airforce base and the flyover in front of the army base. Also, the army authorities did not provide to our sources further information, videos or photos relating to the attack.

It would be recalled that soldiers at the 1st Mechanized Division were involved in the arrest of suspected Boko Haram sponsor and arms dealer, Nuhu Mohammed and his son, both accused of aiding the Muslim militant group in Kaduna.  They have remained in detention within the army base from where they have made their court appearances.

It is not known if the objective of today's heavy assault was to free them from detention.

Do not negotiate

Skin the so called boko haran spokes man alive so that others will learn their lesses.It sounds funning that Boko Haran who refuses to negotiates before are now ready to negotiates because the so called spokes man has been caught.

President jonathan do not nogotiate with them, hunt them down and skin them alive one after the other.Enough is enough for the wise.We had enough of this killers oviously.Each time we are planning to advance into the next level this people are holding us back with destruction.

Major Gideon Okar - Why we struck

How many more lives have been lost to the Hausa-Fulani butchery since our execution in 1990? Obviously they run into their tens of thousands. We knew this would happen and that was what we wanted to prevent. Because of the possibility of failure we wanted to leave the message which some termed unacceptable and others, premature.

Nigerians can be forgiven for failure to understand the necessity of excising those states in 1990. But now, how many millions of lives, how much destruction of property, infrastructure and places of worship will it take to convince skeptics that excision is the only way to stop it.

We, that laid down our lives to save you:

Major Gideon Orkar, Captain N.H. Empere, Captain P.A.Dakolo, Capt AA Nonju, Lt. AE Akogun, Lt. CN Odey, Lt. Cyril Ozualor, Lt. NEO Deji, 2/Lt AB Umukoro, 2/Lt EJ Ejesuku, SSgt Julius Itua, Sgt Martins Ademokhai, Sgt. Pius Ilegar and over a hundred others

i have a pic of the distruction inside the army base

This is total cover up, one of the car exploded inside the base and a bus exploded in an over head bridge with casualties, no photos,no videos and they read us a script and expect nigerians to accept it. Where is the FoI bill, freedom of information.

How Did the Inept Nigerian Troops Defeat The Biafran Army?

Nigeria's national security force is weak and corrupt,I would urge every Nigerian in the north to defend themselves against any insurgent or face the wrath of a near by IED. I am now convinced that if not for western countries like Britain and France,the corrupt,tribal,inept Federal troops would not have defeated the Biafran Republic.As long as corruption thrives in Nigeria, the Islamic Militant Group known as Boko Haram will continue to cause mayhem.The fertilizer used in manufacturing those local made IEDs by Boko Haram are from Libya, it is about time GEJ seal the Nigerian borders up north.SNC should be taken seriously by all region if truly we want peace to rain. Otile, you are funny....lol

Fake jihad

Otile go fuck ur dirty self. You are a fake moda fucker...

Omoaholo Imogirie, Don't

Omoaholo Imogirie,
Don't listen to anybody who tells you that I was ever in the military. How can I be a military man? I can't even scare a crow how much shooting my fellow human being. Soldiers are trained to shed blood whenever corrupt politicians see an advantage. Actually the people they kill are imaginary enemies who do not play any part in the decisions corrupt politicians make. Nigeria has the largest number of generals and high ranking officers in the world. In any sane society Obj, IBB, Useni and Buhari could only attain the rank of SSgt’s. When they promoted themselves to generals they had neither the discipline nor the education to become commissioned officers. Their self promotion is equivalent to armed robbery. They abused their ranks and looted the national treasury. Nigeria does not really have an army, what we got is equivalent to militia men. Can they defeat a battalion of Boko Haram?

The nation Nigeria is save

With what is happening the country can never all apart. This great nation was built by God and no matter man no matter any guise they appear can tear it apart. God bless nation and bring the Boko harram and the sponsors to book

God bless you for this

God bless you for this comment hoping someone read this!!!

OTILE, You Have Never Stop To Amused Me

Otile, you have never stop to amused me. You always hit the nail at the head. I thought we have gallant soldiers in Nigeria. Only in Nigeria, we can boast of our armies with the ranks of Genearals , major generals, brig. generals to mention but a few. If I am not mistaken, didn't IBB retired as Field Marshall? Recently President Goodluck Jonathan decorated some of them to many other ranks. These generals are mockery to the world. They could not fight the Boko Haram warriors who engaged them with bows, arrows, IED, string shots etc. What kind of war school did they attend? Oh, I forget the Kaduna Jaji advanced war college. Otile, I was told you were a course mate with one of the generals & also an Alumini.

The Boko Haram Are In Disarmament Business In Kaduna

The Boko Haram are in disarmament business in Kaduna. They are fed up with the weapons of mass distructions stock pile in their country's headquartes in Northern Nigeria of Kaduna. They have the excuse of destroying the weapons, because it does not serve their interest any more. That the weapons were meant to attack the south in case they rise against the North for stealing their oil & money. The Boko Haram said, they have gotten their groundnuts, herd & skins monies used for exploration of oil in the south. Boko Haram spokesman told PM News that they are ready to part ways with the south but the Sultan of Sokoto & their elites would not let them leave the union of the infidels and for that reason they have to reduce their power by destroying the weapon of oppressions of the southerners. The Boko Haram believes in the doctrines of ARABA. ARABA they stand.

Allah Wubade. We know that in

Allah Wubade. We know that in any battle Abu Quqa's men will always defeat the Federal troops. The federal troops can call the jihadist weapons whatever they like: ieds, improvised, crude, raw, not well made devices. It doesn't matter. The fact is that their weapons are effective. You can only count on the federal troops to defeat unarmed civilians as they did in Odi, Gbaramatu, and against Igbo children during the genocide. Why can't the federal troops retaliate or even face the jihadists in birnin Kano, Kaduna, Abuja or Maiduguri? They usually flee at the approach of the strong jihadists.

@ nebuchadnezzar

Put off the light? PHC dey work? You mean my generating set? The thing will go off after petrol finish.

Don't Handover Suspects To The Police

Congrat to the Military. Don't Handover Suspects To The Nigerian Police no matter what. They will let them go. We do not have confidence in the police. They have failed Nigeria and Nigerians in many ways.

Re:Boko Haram and the pussilaminous President

With what is happening in Nigeria right now,one does nomt need a crystal ball to predict that the country is gradually falling apart.There is no scintilla of unity whatsoever. We should be split amongst religious divides which is almost done by the natural demarcation of rivers Benue and Niger. Unfortunately,our president is so diffident in moving the country foreword or splitting the damn nation.

Wahala, Just shut up, you are

Wahala, Just shut up, you are miserable and do not make sense. Why dont you go to Kaduna and verify since you dont believe the official report? People like you will ever remain negative and sceptical, no matter what our security forces are doing - for you and your cohort, there is one agenda, discredit and pull the government down. You are either an agent of Tunde Bakare or a Boko Haram supporter. Why dont you publish your rubbish comments in other papers, only in Sahara reporters where people like you who lack objectivity abound. Shame on all of you unpatrotic idle minds.

lie lie

They are covering up

Thumbs up to the military,

Thumbs up to the military, you guys are beginning to step up to the challenge

BH Non-State Military Combatants

BH is a non-state combat army requiring military operations from arrests, detention and trial exempt police and civil courts from this. Rejigg terrorism laws accordingly. America deviced Guatanamo Bay detention facility to contain AlQiada within the boundaries of law and with full military might. The emergence of non-state combat armies and terrorists has elicited a new strategic thinking for world military. The Nigerian Army and other military must wear a new thinking cap to meet this challenge, moreso when they are BH prime target. Acess rules to police and military establishments must be reviewed and followed without breach

Bullshit

The whole story is bullshit, a car with unkwnown identity will drive past a sentry post of a military divisional hq. What are the use of cctvs, an binoculars, and finally what is the use of the sentry post, possibly when one lousy commander is driving in one idiot will start barking like a hungry dog. BH is nothing but a test of Nigerian security alertness which has basically not to do with the president of the nation, but his military subordinates. Aso rock is not safe, at this rate.

AKARA AGBASA!!

May the last man to leave the country formerly known as Nigeria, please put off the light.
TO YOUR TENTS OH ISREAL.

another cock n bull story

Its a shame that these almajiras have managed to penetrate these 'supposed' Nigerians' major security divisions . Let them not feed us with their lies and provide us with pictures of their claims.
