The Nigerian Army has lost its top commander identified as Colonel DC Bako, to the murderous Boko Haram terrorists in Borno State.
According to reports by HumAngle, the senior military officer lost his life on Monday in an ambush set up by the terrorists.
Before meeting his death in the hands of Boko Haram terrorists,
Bako, was a Commander of Sector 2, Operation Lafiya Dole, who was with his team combating terrorism in the North-East region of the country.
The spokesperson for Operation Lafiya Dole, Ado Isa, who confirmed the incident said the colonel died in a military hospital where he was receiving treatment after the ambush.
Isa said, “Operation LAFIYA DOLE wishes to intimate the general public of the demise of one of our gallant and finest war heroes Col DC Bako. It could be recalled that the professional, gallant senior officer who always led from the front and a patriotic Nigerian, led a patrol to clear Boko Haram terrorists from Sabon Gari-Wajiroko axis near Damboa when his patrol team entered an ambush at about 10:00am on Sunday, 20 September 2020. Under his able leadership, the troops cleared the ambush resulting to the killing of scores of terrorists and recovery of weapons and equipment.
“Sadly, however, he was wounded in action and immediately evacuated by the Air Task Force Operation LAFIYA DOLE to the 7 Division Hospital at Maimalari Cantonment. The late senior officer was recuperating well after successful operation at the hospital in good spirit and also said his prayers in the early hours of this morning before his sad passing at the hospital.”
