A police sergeant has lamented the suffering of security agents deployed to fight insurgents in Yobe State, calling on the government to come to their rescue.

The sergeant, in a video that went viral in social media on Wednesday, claimed that there was an attack on his base in Gujba, Yobe State, on June 17, adding that several policemen were killed.

He noted that the Boko Haram members burnt the property of those who survived the attack, wondering why their sacrifice was not reciprocated by the government.

The cop was filmed by a colleague, while another officer tried to salvage the leftover of their burnt property.

He said, “Good morning fellow Nigerians. See what happened to me in Gujba. In Gujba, there was an attack on 17th. They killed my colleagues, they killed Paul. See us that survived today, see how they burnt our things.

“Then, since we came for this operation in Yobe State since December, making it seven months today, no feeding, no allowance, nothing! Because of the N53,000 I am collecting in Nigeria Police as a sergeant, I am dying in Yobe State. Look at how they are burning our things. Look at how many people have died. Nigeria, look into our problem; we are dying. No helper. What are we dying in this country for? Why? Nothing! Hungry servicemen. God is there.”

The Force Public Relations Officer, Frank Mba, could not be reached for comment. A text message sent to him has not been responded to as of press time.(Punch)
