Nigerian Soldiers flee Boko Haram for lack of weapons


For years now the Islamic insurgent group known as the Boko Haram have posed a major problem for the Nigerian government whose solution seems to be receding farther from the sights of the West African country as soldiers have been spotted fleeing from their stations.

In a video spotted by My News Ghana a number of Nigerian soldiers were filmed leaving their stations on the grounds of inadequate weaponry to fight the rebel group. In the video a man is heard commenting that, “if Nigeria is ready to fight them they should call us back.”

This incident comes on the heels of reports of $100 million worth of military funds disappearing from accounts. According to the government, investigations are ongoing to discover the whereabouts of the money.
