Insecurity: Army, ISWAP, Boko Haram in Fierce Battle in Damboa (Updated: Saturday, 20th November 2021, 06:39 AM)


The Nigerian Army has warned that terrorists belonging to the Boko Haram and Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) are retreating in some parts of the northeast following a fierce battle this morning.

The army warned Nigerians to be vigilant.

It said the terrorists who invaded Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State early morning on Friday were forced to retreat after the superior power of the troops overpowered them

Brigadier General Onyema Nwachukwu, Army Public Relations in a statement on Friday, said, the gallant troops of 25 Task Force(TF) Brigade countered the attack by the terrorists who made spirited attempt to infiltrate the town.

He said the criminals attacked the town in the early hours of Friday, through multiple flanks with an unconfirmed number of ISWAP foot soldiers on Gun Trucks.

He said they were, however, subdued by the overwhelming firepower of the vigilant troops.

He explained that the actual number of casualties could not be immediately ascertained at the time of the statement as bloodstains were reportedly seen on the terrorists’ withdrawal routes.

“This lastest operational feat attests to the continuous combat readiness and troops renewed vigour to effectively deny these criminal elements freedom of action.

 ” This clearly signifies the resolve of the good people of the North East who have chosen to take ownership of the ongoing counter-insurgency operations by providing credible information on the clandestine activities of the criminals.” The statement said

He said, the Chief of Army Staff, Lieutenant General Faruk Yahaya salutes the gallantry displayed by troops while urging them across all theatres of operations to sustain the current operational tempo
