The Nigerian soldiers captured by Boko Haram terrorists
The insurgents paraded some of the captives before cameras and they identified themselves with their military service numbers, units and names.
“I am Corporal Yusuf Musa of 221 battalion. I was attached to 119 Taskforce battalion, Kangaruwa. I was captured during an attack in Metele, Borno state, last year November,” one of the officers said.
“Our people ran away when I was captured.”
The insurgents said vehicles, boats painted in colours of the Nigerian army were seized from attacks on military bases.
It is unclear when the videos were released.
A military source said all those captured had been killed but TheCable cannot independently verify this claim.
Boko Haram fighters have launched several attacks on military formation in the north-east, also claiming to have executed soldiers.
Musa Sagir, army spokesman, is yet to react to TheCable’s inquiries on the videos.
