Nigerian forces neutralize ISWAP terrorists in Borno’s Mafa town

Nigerian troops on Tuesday took out Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters in Borno State.

The battle with the sect members happened in Ngwom community under Mafa Local Government Area.

The terrorists sneaked into the locality on six gun trucks through a cattle crossing point in Mafa at about 6:50 pm.

The military believes ISWAP was on a mission to target its formation within the town.

An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that troops of 195 Battalion Operation Hadin Kai in Jere were mobilised to face the enemies.

“We have counted four corpses of the invaders and still pursuing others using the track of blood in the bush.

“After our clearance operation on their escape routes, detailed updates can be provided,” the source added.
