A soldier has claimed that he witnessed incidents that suggested some military commanders work with Boko Haram insurgents in the North-East. The soldier told the Voice of America Hausa Service how his military unit in Borno State was ambushed by Boko Haram members. He said the commander of a nearby military unit in Bama recently sought assistance from his unit in carrying out a raid. The soldier, who did not give his name, said when the two military units joined up, they were given different uniforms. The Bama unit commander, according to him, gave his own troops green uniforms while his unit received tan “desert camouflage” uniforms.
