Also in the video Published by SaharaReporters, an MRAP was captured going up in flames. It is unclear whether it was set ablaze by insurgents or by the revolting soldiers.
One of the soldiers who recorded the video was heard sobbing and lamenting with great bitterness that they were being set up and ambushed as boko haram terrorists attacked them. He was heard saying:
“E no go beter for Army…Army don finish us. After, if we talk, dem go say JAIL. E no go beter for Buratai”.
MRAP or Mines Resistant Ambush Protected, are combat vehicles. They are designed specifically to withstand improvised explosive device (IED) attacks and ambushes.

KanyiDaily recalls that Buratai had last month relocated to the North East in order to oversee the overall operations of the war against insurgency.
While addressing soldiers in the forefront of the battle, Butatai vowed to remain in the North East unitil the Nigerian Army defeats Boko Haram insurgency.
