Troops foil ISWAP attack on repentant Boko Haram families in Borno

The Nigerian military thwarted an attempt by the Islamist State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) to attack a camp of repentant Boko Haram members in Borno.

Troops pushed back insurgents as they moved towards their targeted location in Damboa Local Government Area.

The fighters stormed Damboa town in a convoy of gun trucks Saturday evening, sources told PRNigeria.

“The camp is where hundreds of repentant Boko Haram members have been staying since they renounced terrorism,” an officer said.

The intelligence disclosed that forces were deployed to face the ISWAP marauders after a distress call.

“Though the terrorists were repelled in a brutal gunfire, I cannot give the number of casualties they could have suffered”, he added.
