During the weekend, Operation Hadin Kai troops in the northeastern Nigerian state of Borno were able to capture at least 100 Boko Haram terrorists.
On January 23, 2023, in Damboa, Borno state, troops from the 25th Task Force Brigade nullified a number of ISWAP terrorists as part of Operation Hadin Kai.
Along the road from Damboa to Maiduguri, the terrorists attempted to ambush the soldiers who were on fighting patrol in Komala village.
One Guntruck, MRAP, and three motorcycles were confiscated from the terrorists. ISWAP terrorists have continued to suffer strings of humiliating defeats at the hands of Nigerian troops. On January 13, the troops eliminated several of the terrorists and destroyed their MRAPs when they attacked their own troops in Azir.
In early January, Boko Haram took control of the operational bases of the Islamic State West Africa Province, ISWAP, forcing 11 leaders and militant clerics to flee.
The terrorist organisation’s captured bases are in the Abadam Local Council. Yesterday in Maiduguri, Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, revealed that the seizure of the ISWAP bases prompted 11 leaders, along with ISWAP leader Abu Moussab al-Barnawi, to flee.
