Nigerians soldiers have taken to social media to narrate the sad condition they’ve been left in, just after 100 of their colleagues were killed by Boko Haram terrorists.

While the Nigerian army, the Presidency and other media aides are yet to comment on the recent killings, however the Nigerian soldiers were heard saying that their superiors and politicians ‘were using them to make money’ in the video.

The distraught soldiers also complained about the obsolete weapons they are armed with, to fight against the insurgents who have a better weapon.

This is coming a day after a disturbing footage of an attack by Boko Haram terrorists which left many people dead, was released online. The worst losses came when the terrorists, overran a military base in the village of Metele in the north-eastern state of Borno on Sunday.

The area is the centre of an insurgency waged by Boko Haram, which was founded nine years ago to bring strict Islamic law to swaths of Nigeria, and a second newer group linked to Islamic State. Nigeria’s military and government have repeatedly said they are on the point of defeating the militants.

However, raids on military bases have continued over recent months, inflicting significant casualties. One assault on an army post on the border with Niger in September left 48 people dead.

An officer among the troops attacked at Metele told Reuters:

“THE INSURGENTS TOOK US UNAWARES. WE LOST ABOUT 100 SOLDIERS. IT IS A HUGE LOSS.
“WE ALL [RAN AWAY] BECAUSE WE DIDN’T KNOW WHERE THE BULLETS WERE COMING FROM.

THEY KILLED SOME OF US WHO WENT TO EVACUATE THE BODIES OF THE KILLED SOLDIERS. WE LEFT OUR ARMOUR, TANKS AND WEAPONS … THE VILLAGE IS STILL UNDER THEIR CONTROL.”
