Numerous militants were reportedly killed when soldiers from operation Hadin Kai bombed trucks carrying members of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP).
The event occurred on Sunday as the militants marched towards the Kau-Shoro’a axis in Damboa LGA, according to Zagazola Makama, a journal focused on the Lake Chad region.
According to reports, the Nigerian Air Force’s recently acquired Super Tucano light attack aircraft killed the rebels (NAF).
The change occurs a few weeks after two ISWAP leaders were killed in an airstrike by Hadin Kai soldiers near Lake Chad.
Ali Kwaya and Bukar Mainoka, the ISWAP leaders, along with other insurgents, were said to have gathered to launch an attack on the troops when they were killed with rockets and bombs fired at their enclave.
Also, on November 6, the Borno police command repelled an attack by ISWAP fighters in Magumeri town in Borno.
The ISWAP fighters stormed a divisional police command in the town in gun trucks and motorcycles at about 12:35am.
The attack triggered a gun battle between the police operatives and the insurgents, after which Bitrus Umaru, identified as a police inspector, was shot in the stomach and right leg.
