Soldiers Retreat from Mubi…

Reports say that many Soldiers of the Nigerian military flee Mubi in Adamawa State to near by local governments as well as residents, due to the attack launched on that area yesterday by boko haram militants.

Sources reveal that the insurgents engaged FG Soldiers in a fierce battle as they invade Mubi towns, splitting in groups with some Boko Haram members advancing towards Mararraban Mubi and Vintim, the home town of Chief of Defence Staff, Air Marshal Alex Badeh, giving Nigerian troops a hot chase.

Residents of nearby towns also said they saw military vehicles zooming off towards Yola, the state capital, adding that several people might have been killed during the shooting spree that lasted almost two hours in Uba and other villages.

Meanwhile residents who fled confirmed that Mubi has been deserted and people have all fled into nearby bushes and hilltops, with Nigerian Soldiers retreating as well.
