He further disclosed to Daily Trust that the base was razed down as several valuables were stolen by the assailants.


“They came at about 4pm and due to the sand storms, it was difficult for soldiers to repel them. They burnt down the base including APC and four other vehicles.


“I can’t ascertain if there was any causality figure,” Abu said.


Meanwhile, News Online reports that the Nigerian Army has begged Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists to seek forgiveness and reconciliation, saying soldiers and the public are not happy people are dying.
