The Nigerian military will seek revenge for the deaths of its soldiers in an ambush on August 14 on the Zungeru-Tegina route in Niger State, as promised by the country’s chief of defense, General Christopher Musa.
Remember how the soldiers who engaged the terrorists were shot dead and the rescue plane crashed?
Last week, the military said that 36 service members had lost their lives in two separate incidents in the country’s north: an ambush on the Zungeru-Tegina route and an accident in the Chukuba district of Shiroro.
Musa took the lead in this on Friday after he had visited the graves of 20 fallen soldiers at the Military Cemetery in Abuja and presented national flags to their families.
The Nigerian Defense Minister has promised that those responsible for the deaths of Nigerian soldiers will not escape punishment.
Musa shared the family’s sorrow and assured them that their loved ones’ deaths were not in vain.
The speaker promised, “Those that did this and those that have continued our men, wherever they are, we will get them out, we will smoke them out, and I assure you that they will never again have the opportunity to kill any other person.”
