Three soldiers were killed and ten others were injured in an ambush on their convoy by the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) while repelling terrorists in Borno State’s Abadam local government area.

According to reports, the troops involved in the clearing operation against the terror group, Sector 3 and Sector 4 Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF), were attacked on Sunday by a Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED) while advancing towards the ISWAP camp in Tunbum Reza.

According to intelligence information obtained from top security sources by a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in the Lake Chad region Zagazola Makama, the joint troops effectively responded with superior firepower and successfully fought off the ambush.

According to sources, one of the VBIEDs struck an MRAP belonging to Niger Republic troops from Sector 4 MNJTF, while the other struck a Hilux truck.

According to the sources, terrorists suffered significant casualties, though the exact number is unknown.

“This attack comes less than 24 hours after troops foiled a similar attack in Arege, killing ten ISWAP terrorists and destroying three of their vehicles.”

“The ISWAP terrorist made an audacious attempt to infiltrate the advancing troops’ harbor using a Vehicle-Borne Improvised Explosive Device (VBIED), but was instantly naturalized,” according to the sources.

The injured personnel were evacuated for medical treatment.

The ongoing Operation HARBIN ZUMA by troops of the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) was designed to clear terrorist hideouts and restore total sanity in the Lake Chad region.

ISWAP, on the other hand, had resorted to desperate but extreme measures to fight back against the military’s intrusion into their enclaves through a series of attacks.
