Troops Foil Attack in Damboa as ISWAP Fighters in Gun Trucks Invade Military Base
Nigerian military troops have foiled an ambush by the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP)-Boko Haram terrorists on a military base in Borno State, PRNigeria has gathered.
The troops, who were deployed from the 25 Task Force Brigade, ‘Operation Hadin Kai’, repelled the attack in Damboa Local Government Area of the State, on Monday evening, according to credible local sources.
It was gathered that the terrorists, who attempted to attack troops formation in the outskirt of Damboa-Biu road, came on six gun trucks and motorcycles.
But they did not succeed in causing any havoc, a top military source in the North East exclusively told PRNigeria.
He said: “The troops from the brigade promptly responded and push them back. No casualty was recorded”.
Recalled that in the early hours of Monday, the insurgents planted Improvised Explosive Devices (IED,) around Mandaragarau in Biu LGA, targeting troops.
Unfortunately, it was a civilian vehicle that stepped on it.
Some passengers were reportedly killed, while others sustained injuries, PRNigeria learnt.
