ISWAP allegedly kills 12 soldiers, vigilantes in Borno ambush
In Borno, the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) has killed at least twelve Nigerian soldiers and local vigilantes, according to the latest reports from the region.
It was the motorcade that was transporting soldiers who had been granted permission to leave the Marte unit.
According to PRNigeria, the troops were ambushed near Ala village, which is located between Marte and Dikwa towns.
When one of their vehicles came into contact with the IED, the terrorists hiding in the vicinity opened fire on it.
The attack took place on the same day that troops repelled ISWAP attacks on a military base in Malam Fatori, Borno, and a community in Babangida, Yobe.
After defeating Boko Haram in Sambisa, ISWAP is consolidating its hold on the region. Aboubacar Oucacha Fiya is the leader of the fighters.
