JUST IN: Military Troops Foil Attack on Dikwa, Pound ISWAP Fighters

The Nigerian troops pounded the ISWAP terrorists on Tuesday evening in Dikwa, Borno State, sending shockwaves to the ranks of the enemies.
Scores of armed terrorists, suspected to be ISWAP militants who recently defeated Shekau’s Boko Haram elements, died in the operTion.
The terrorists had stormed the Borno State town in a convoy of gun trucks, but before they could execute their ‘callous’ mission of attacking residents of the ravaged Dikwa, according to a security source, a response operation by troops of the Nigerian Army and Air Task Force foiled their plan.

The source said there was a fierce gun battle between the Nigerian troops and terrorists, but could not ascertain the number of casualties recorded by the Boko Haram elements.

“The terrorists were pounded severely. Those who survive the troops’ onslaught fled, abandoning their evil mission,” he added.
