By Damilare Adeleye

No fewer than ten members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists have been neutralised after they attempted to attack troops of the Nigerian Army in Borno State.

The development was confirmed in a report by Counter Insurgency Expert in Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama.

He said the terrorists launched a daring attack against the troops at about 10 am on Thursday in Abadam Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno State.

It was learnt that ISWAP terrorists made an audacious attempt to infiltrate the advancing troop’s harbour using a Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED).

However, the troops with support from the Air Task Force killed some of the terrorists while others were forced to flee.

“Two of the terrorists’ vehicles were destroyed and about 10 of them were killed,” Makama quoted a source as saying.
