Boko Haram Terrorists Kill Nigerian Army Commander in Borno

A commander in the Nigerian Army, known as Colonel DC Bako has been reportedly killed by Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.

It was gathered that the Colonel died on Monday after he was ambushed by the Boko Haram.

Before his passing, Colonel Bako was Commander of Sector 2, Operation Lafiya Dole, the team combating terrorism in the North-East region of the country, before he was killed.

According to a statement by Ado Isa, spokesperson for Operation Lafiya Dole, the Commander died in a Military hospital while receiving treatment.

Isa said, “Operation LAFIYA DOLE wishes to intimate the general public of the demise of one of our gallant and finest war heroes Col DC Bako. It could be recalled that the professional, gallant senior officer who always led from the front and a patriotic Nigerian, led a patrol to clear Boko Haram terrorists from Sabon Gari-Wajiroko axis near Damboa when his patrol team entered an ambush at about 10:00am on Sunday, 20 September, 2020. Under his able leadership, the troops cleared the ambush resulting to the killing of scores of terrorists and recovery of weapons and equipment.”

“Sadly, however, he was wounded in action and immediately evacuated by the Air Task Force Operation LAFIYA DOLE to the 7 Division Hospital at Maimalari Cantonment. The late senior officer was recuperating well after successful operation at the hospital in good spirit and also said his prayers in the early hours of this morning before his sad passing at the hospital.”
