Another 34 Nigerian Soldiers Killed,105 Killed Last Week Were Secretly Buried.

--the 34 men Killed are from the 118 battalion, while the 105 were from the 157 battalion in Warri.

The Nigerian Army at the military cemetery in Maiduguri this morning secretly buried the bodies of about 105 soldiers killed by the Islamist terror group, Boko Haram insurgents.
The decomposed bodies of the men who were killed in an encounter with the terrorists last week Wednesday were brought to Maiduguri Monday evening in body bags and were confirmed by the Brigade Commander, Army Engineering Corps.
The military in an attempt to cover up the development has denied that any soldier was missing and described an exclusive story published Thursday by Premium Times as “a fabrication from the imagination of those sympathetic to Boko Haram ways of life.”

Military spokesman, Colonel Tukur Ismail Gusau said insurgents attacked the location of 157 Battalion last Wednesday, but they were “subsequently repelled by the gallant troops of the Unit.” He added that the unit’s commanding officer remained in contact with his Brigade Commander.
It was reported that at least 105 soldiers attached to the 157 battalion went missing after they came under intense attack from Boko Haram insurgents in Gudunbali, Borno, on Wednesday morning.
It was also reported that the terrorists captured a T-72 tank as well as several artillery weapons from the unit.
Nigerian Times source in Maiduguri who confirmed the latest development also revealed that about 34 men of the 118 battalion were also killed by the insurgents last week but the story was covered up by military authorities
The burial of the slain soldiers is coming on the heels of a statement on Monday by Defence Spokesman, Col. Sani Usman who described the report of the missing soldiers as a smear campaign against the Nigerian military.
