They claimed the insurgents who were not scared about the MNJTF and Nigeria soldiers presence drove into the fishing town in a convoy of over ten fighter gun vehicles. They were said to have gained entry into the town through the main road from Kross Kawwa to launch the Coordinated attacks on Wednesday, December 26, 2018, which may have devastated the MNJTF and Nigeria soldiers.
They were said to have overrun the MNJTF Headquarters, a Naval fighting base and a Marine police base in taking over Baga and the six other Communities- Doron Baga, Kross Kawwa, Bunduran,Kekeno and and Kukawa .
The situation in Baga may have become worrisome that security experts could not precisely say whether the MNJTF and Nigerian soldiers were still in control of Baga that Abubakar Sadiq, an Air Marshal and Chief of Air Staff have to give the nod for the deployment of Air Force fighter jets to provide close air support to troops of the 45 Battalion at Damarsak in northern part of Borno.

Security sources believes that the MNJTF and the Nigerian soldiers may not have been able to flush out the terrorists from the Nigeria soil because the battle which was initially centered on crushing the BokoHaram insurgents has turned into a full scale jihadist war with the involvement of the ISWAP, who have their Al-Queda sponsors in the Islamic Maghreb region of North Africa including Mauritania.
A south African Mercenary reportedly said that the major problem of the MNJTF and Nigerian soldiers was the sub-standard training which many of them received on weapons handling during a war situation. The mercenary may have hit the nail on the head when he was quoted to have said that Buhari has been taking the worst military advice from his security Advisers.
He noted that the moles are always happy to see Buhari allow military personnel travel overseas or proceed to the Nigerian military Academy , Zaria, where they receive substandard training and the incorrect equipment supplied by the United States and other foreign governments and their PMCs-along with worst military advice.
The South African Mercenary said the MNJTF and the Nigerian soldiers should not be blamed over their inability to crush the but on those who have been giving worst the military advice Buhari, which he has been carrying out over the last three and half years. The fallout was the ease at which the insurgents attack military bases leaving on their throes scores of slain soldiers in the state. The Metele attack where over 100 soldiers were killed remain fresh in the mind, though the Army claimed only 13 soldiers lost their lives during the confrontation. The insurgents were said to held on to the MNJTF and Nigeria soldiers for hours at the military base without running out of weapons or withdrawing from the advancing MNJTF and Nigeria troops.
