Troops kill scores of terrorists in Borno

The Air Task Force (ATF) of Operation Hadin Kai killed scores of Boko Haram/Islamic State of West African (ISWAP) terrorists in an air raid in the Bama Local Government Area of Borno State.
It was gathered that members of the two terrorist factions were neutralized in the middle of their infighting in Gazuwa, a notorious headquarters of Boko Haram, located 8 kilometres to Bama Local Government Area on Aug 5, 2022.
According to a source who is a counter-terrorism expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, the damaging air interdiction mission was launched after a series of surveillance missions which indicated the heavy presence of terrorists in the area.
“They were in a middle of a fight when the Super Tukano attacked them, scoring a devastating hit on them, killing scores of the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists, in the process,” the source said.
The source explained also that in continuation of its employment of the air-power to decimate the capability of the insurgents, the air strikes successfully took off another group of the terrorists around the axis of Gargash.
According to the source, unspecified numbers of terrorists were neutralized in the process.
It was gathered that life has been turned upside-down in the camps of the Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, Boko Haram within the past weeks following massive air and ground attacks coordinated by the troops of Operations Hadin Kai.
However, it was learnt that not fewer than 20 terrorists and their families from Njimiya camp had surrendered to the troops of 21 Armoured  Brigade Bama, due to the fear of being attacked by air strikes.
Another source said that the continued attacks have triggered massive displacement and hunger in most of the terrorists’ camps, leaving them with no option but to surrender, continue hiding in one place without food or run out of the forest and die.
It would be recalled that troops neutralized another notorious commander of Boko Haram Alhaji Modu also known as “Bem Bem”, and 27 other fighters in Borno State.
