Nigerian military artillery has neutralised a convergence of the Islamic State of the West African Province (ISWAP), killing many terrorists in Yobe State, northeast Nigeria.


It was gathered that the insurgents had converged at a location given as Wulle with motorcycles and vehicles to carry out an attack on the nearest troops’ formation.


An intelligence officer told Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, that acting on intelligence, the troops of the 27 Task Force Battalion fired several artillery at the terrorists, which resulted in the killing of an unspecified number of them.


It was also learnt that some of the terrorists who escaped bombardment later returned on six motorcycles and one vehicle to evacuate their comrades’ corpses.
