What was meant to be a surprise dawn attack on Multinational Joint Task Force and national troops this morning became a nightmare for the Islamic State West Africa Province(ISWAP), as 10 of its terrorists met their waterloo in Baga.
Specifically, at about 5:30 am this morning, ISWAP terrorists numbering about 30 infested troops defensive locality. However, vigilant troops spotted their approach and promptly thwarted what could have been an audacious assault.
In the process, 10 terrorists, including 4 suicide bombers were neutralized. Others escaped with gun shot wounds, as blood stained tracks were observed. Additionally, assorted arms and ammunition were impounded from other terrorists who fled in disarray. Unfortunately, a soldier paid the supreme, while 5 others sustained varying injuries and have been evaluated for medical attention.
It must be reemphasized that the MNJTF acting cohesively with national forces will continue to pursue courses of action necessary for the achievement of it’s mandate in the Lake Chad Basin.
