Yobe, Nigeria – Military troops, 27 Task Force Brigade have killed and neutralised many Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists in a failed attack in Buni Yadi, Yobe State.

As per Leadership report, this came a few hours after ISWAP terrorists released a propaganda video denouncing the 2023 election and threatening to disrupt it.

It was gathered that the terrorists came on motorcycles to the outskirts of the town at about 6:21pm and fired several mortar bombs targeting the military base, but the bombs fell in different directions without recording any impact.

Security sources told Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad region that on sighting the troops, the terrorists fled toward the axis of Goniri.

The sources said that the troops chased the terrorists and engaged them in a gun battle, as a result neutralised some of them in the process while others escaped.

The sources explained that the terrorists were later sighted evacuating dead bodies of their fighters.

“After sighting them, our troops fired several artillery towards the locations. This is their second failed attack on our troops.

Last week, they claimed to have fired five mortar shells at our base and claimed it was victory even as it only landed in the bushes. They wanted to try their luck today and they lost badly,” the sources said.
