Skip to comments.Nigerian Army 'Kills 300 Boko Haram Fighters'

Hundreds of militants have been killed during the struggle to recapture the Nigerian garrison town of Monguno, according to officials.
"Over 300 terrorists were killed while a few were also captured," said defence spokesman Major-General Chris Olukolade.
The claims follow similar statements from Niger, Chad and Cameroon - who are also involved in fighting the terror group - but they have not been independently confirmed.
The army has often claimed success against the group which has then been contradicted by witness reports.
Civilian vigilantes in the town confirmed it had been retaken and said there had been heavy casualties, but did not specify how many people had died.
A large stockpile of arms, equipment and ammunition was also said to have been destroyed.

It’s a start
Good Luck President Goodluck Jonathan.
Good on ya! And notice, they call them what they are. Terrorists. Not random people killing other random people for random reasons like our idiot in chief. You hunt them down and kill them. You don’t offer them job applications. You don’t have a beer summit to learn their grievances. You don’t capitulate or waffle. You kill them.
The brushfire is spreading...
If they could take down maybe ten times that number, the morale of the insurgents would be severely shaken, and they would start suffering mass desertions. Good on the short term, but until all the participants are hunted down and exterminated, there is a chance the cancer would metastasize.
You DO have to kill them to make them stop. No matter what Marie Harf says.
Next stop: Hell. Hell has plenty of jobs for these guys.
Where are those poor kidnapped and enslaved school girls? Some one should be able to beat that information out of the prisoners. If that doesn’t work, waterboarding does, and who but the most ardent Democrat would object to that?
I’ll be the number was closer to 30.
Actually, I would like us to send in the Harf Bimbo with a stack of job applications to pass out to the Boko Haram crew. Let her put her Grand Theory to the test, upfront and personal.
Yeah, unfortunately, info from Nigeria is about as reliable as our State Department. Meaning, 95% chance of a BS tsunami.
If you are really smart, you also DON’T destroy large stock piles of arms and ammunition, you might need them later.
They ought to have all the Boko Haram prisoners in restraints in a huge gymnasium and let the relatives of the kidnaped girls see if they can find out where the girls are.
Give ‘em whatever they need: blow torchs, pliers, dental floss, soldering irons, staple guns, toothpics, ballpeen hammers, etc.
I thought about that too, when I read that line. Makes me think they're making the whole story up and have to explain where all the weapons went.
Shame on the Nigerians! They should have gotten jobs and midnight baskeball for these Boko thugs.
Over 300 terrorists were killed
Sounds like a good start to me! Keep up the good work.
Civilian vigilantes in the town confirmed it had been retaken and said there had been heavy casualties... A large stockpile of arms, equipment and ammunition was also said to have been destroyed.Of course, if 3,000 more fled, they'll take over again as soon as the army pulls out.
“Over 300 terrorists were killed while a few were also captured”
It’s pretty easy to capture them once you’ve killed them, right?
