The Nigerian Army Troops in conjunction with Air Component of Operation Hadin Kai said they have on Wednesday inflicted heavy casualty on Islamic State West Africa Province ( ISWAP) Terrorists group who lunched a futile attack on Damboa LGA of Borno State.
A statement by Brigadier General Muhammad Yerima, Director Army Public Relations noted that the suspected terrorists attacked the town in multiple waves with Armoured Personnel Carrier and 12 Gun Trucks saying that all mounted with Anti Aircraft Guns as well as locally lubricated Armoured-plated Vehicles loaded with explosives and motorcycles.
” The gallant troops successfully defeated the attack, destroyed the locally fabricated armoured-plated vehicles and neutralized over 50 ISWAP- terrorists forcing the survivors to run in disarray under heavy gun fire from the resilient troops and Nigerian Air Force attack platform.
The statement pointed out that the so-called suicide bombers abandoned their vehicles primed with explosives as they couldn’t withstand the overwhelming the fire power from the highly motivated troops.
” Several weapons and ammunition were recovered from the deplated terrorists”.
