Sahara Reporters

Terrorists from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād on Sunday attacked the Army Special Super Camp at Ngamdu, a border town between

Borno and Yobe States, killing over 6 soldiers, military sources told SaharaReporters.

Ngamdu is under Kaga Local Government Area of Borno and about 100km to the capital, Maiduguri.

SaharaReporters gathered that the terrorists came in no fewer than 10 gun trucks and could not be counted.

A source said about six Nigerian soldiers were killed, while others including the Brigadier General in-charge of the camp, were injured.

‪The insurgents also went away with a military operational vehicle, different arms and ammunition.

“They stormed the unit with about 10 gun-trucks and 4 MRAP. They beat the security checks and pretended to be friendly forces. They first attacked the Brigade Commander, wounded his ADC also. They later killed like six soldiers,” a source said.

The attack comes a few weeks after the insurgents killed over 25 soldiers who were also on patrol in Monguno area of Borno state.

Monguno is North, about 70km drive from Maiduguri, the state capital and hosted thousands of Internally Displaced Persons mostly from Dikwa and Marte council areas.

“At least 25 soldiers have been confirmed dead, the authorities have contacted some of their families, their bodies are already deposited at the morgue,” a source had told SaharaReporters.

The Nigerian military has repeatedly claimed that the insurgency had been largely defeated and frequently underplays any losses.
In the past months, soldiers have been targeted by the insurgents…

Fulani criminals from Guinea and their thugs nickname military, police etc. which do not respect democratic decision of this territory natives majority, must be eliminated on every inch of the six sovereign states. Where democratic decision of the majority is not respected, the Sword decides. War is legitimate instrument by law to defend democratic decision of the majority. We the majority of this territory natives which stand for liberation from the bondage of fulani caliphate called Nigeria in which the six geopolitical zones are sovereign states, must defend our democratic decision with whatever it takes. Only the Sword decides.
