Former Chief of Army Staff, Gen. Martin Luther Agwai, at the 50th anniversary of the Nigerian Fellowship of Evangelical Students, (NIFES) said the troops fighting against Boko Haram are suffering casualties because the battle is unconventional. He said this in reaction to the ‘sad’ killings of soldiers at Metele, Borno state.

He appealed to Nigerians not to see the casualties as a weakness on the part of the soldiers as they were faced with a battle different from the conventional warfare they were trained to fight.

“Let me say this with all sincerity that it is so sad that we have lost such number of people. Let me also remind all that when a dog bites a man, it’s not news but when a man bites a dog, you know that’s news.

“How many of you have reported the number of Boko Haram that have been arrested, those that have been detained and those that have been killed by security agents? It’s because that is the dog biting man, that’s what is expected of the troops.

“But you cannot go to the abattoir and you say you don’t want blood to touch you. If you don’t want blood to touch you, then you must not go to the abattoir. So, we as a nation must be prepared to get this type of bad news. It doesn’t mean our soldiers are not fighting gallantly.”
