6th September 2014 Emergency Nigeria SITREP
The town of Gulak in Adamawa State was overrun yesterday evening by insurgent forces according to local media reports. Other reports confirmed that hundreds of insurgent fighters (most probably the recent fresh troops reportedly crossing in from Cameroon days back) in Toyota pickup trucks backed by truck mounted heavy machine guns and over a dozen armoured vehicles stormed the town of Gulak causing over 400 Nigerian troops members of Task Force Mike (Special Operations troops and elements of 3 Division Armoured headquartered at Jos, Plateau State) to flee the town to neighbouring Mubi.
Gulak had previously been designated the principal staging area for the launch of the counter attack to recover Madagali LGA from insurgent control.
