Contrary to claims by the Nigerian Chief of Army Staff, Gen Tukur Buratai  that the missing  105 Nigerian troops together with the Commanding Officer who engaged the Boko Haram insurgents in an offensive have returned to base, reports reaching our Rome newsdesk refuted the claims saying there is no truth in the report.

In the deadly encounter, the Nigerian troops while making tactical manoeuvres were gotten the better of by the heavily armed insurgents. The insurgents, our reporter revealed, had a superior firepower that forced the Nigerian troops to retreat.

The claim that the missing soldiers had returned to base became necessary not to dampen the morale of other troops who are presently assaulting the Boko Haram stronghold in the north-east.
