The soldiers of 25 Task Force Brigade roasted a group of Islamist dirtbags who were attempting to attack a town in northeastern Nigeria.
Soldiers successfully repelled a terrorist attack on the town of Damboa, in Borno, Nigeria.
Terrorists from the Islamic State backed faction of Boko Haram reportedly stormed the town at approximately 6:35 a.m., shooting in all directions. Soldiers then engaged the militants in a heavy shootout, overpowering them and forcing them to flee the area.
The terrorists were first spotted in the area of Mandara Garau on November 18th, where they were converging in a large number of trucks, according to one source. The source indicated that the plan may have been to attack a transit camp for “repentant” fighters that is located in Sabon Gari, Damboa.
“They fled after they sighted the Airforce fighter jet on Thursday,” the source said. “Again, they returned this morning. They wanted to attack the ex-militants’ transit camp in Sabon Gari, Damboa.”
“So while attempting to infiltrate the town, the soldiers engaged them in a heavy shootout,” the source added. “Those who survived the troops’ onslaught fled, abandoning their evil mission.”
Since the death of Abubakar Shekau, who was known as the leader of Boko Haram, the group has been attempting to consolidate its control in the area around Lake Chad.
Boko Haram, which is also recognized publicly as the Islamic State West Africa Province group, recently appointed Wali Sani Shuwaram, 45, as its new leader (Wali) in Lake Chad.
According to the Sahara Reporters, “The Nigerian Army has repeatedly claimed that insurgency had been largely defeated and frequently underplayed any losses. The terror group has caused over 50,000 deaths and displaced millions of individuals mainly in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.”
