A video shared online shows the moment some Nigerian soldiers absconded from the war against Boko haram in Baga area of Borno state.
The gallant soldiers said when Nigeria Army is ready to provide them with weapons, they will come back and fight, but for now they are not ready to fight Boko Haram and keep wasting their lives.
One of the soldiers confirmed that many of his colleagues have been killed. They said Boko Haram insurgents are equipped with better weapons
A soldier who filmed the video said: “Many men have fallen, so we are going home, If Nigeria is Ready, they should call us back, we don’t have enough weapon to fight them, so we can’t just be wasting our lives, we have families because without weapon, you are not a soldier.”
The soldier explained that Boko Haram have more dangerous weapons than theirs.
“We are going home let us go and enjoy the new year with our family, if the army is ready, let them call us back with adequate weapon.” He added.
