ISWAP Fighters Kill Boko Haram Terrorists In Borno

The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) has killed a top commander of the Boko Haram terrorist group, Mohammed Reejal.

According to Counter Insurgency expert, Zagazola Makama, the high-ranking Boko Haram member was gunned down by ISWAP fighters on Sunday.

Reejal was said to have been killed during an ambush by ISWAP terrorists around the Tokombare part of Sambisa forest in Borno State.

The slain insurgent was part of the Boko Haram group who were attacked during an alleged operation to invade some communities in the state and loot food items.

Meanwhile, the troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) have eliminated 25 Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists in Lake Chad.

It was gathered that the terrorists were killed when the task force repelled an attack on the Fuel Depot in Soudeye community, located nearby to Borgogorou in Niger Republic on Saturday.

The Task Force was said to have pushed back the terrorists before a combined MNJTF Air Task Force comprising Nigeria and Niger carried out multiple airstrikes, which led to the destruction of three gun trucks and all their occupants.

The MNJTF Air Task Force Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance aircraft trailed the fleeing remnants of the insurgents and destroyed two additional gun trucks killing their occupants.

Naija News understands that the ground and aerial offensives in the Boko Haram/ISWAP strongholds in the Lake Chad Tumbus of Abadam and Marte under Operation Desert and Lake Sanity have pushed terrorists to seek refuge around the riverbanks between Nigeria and Niger Republic.
