Africa Province (ISWAP) have buried 26 members in Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State, northeast Nigeria after sustained aerial bombardments and elimination of the terrorists by the Nigerian military.

The terrorists were eliminated on Sept 9, in a coordinated air strike by the Nigerian military on two camps of the ISWAP in Sigir and Yarwa Kuwa in the fringes of Lake Chad.

An intelligence officer told Zagazola Makama, a counter insurgency expert and security analyst in the Lake Chad that scores of the terrorists were killed in the airstrikes.

The source noted that combat aircraft attacked a gathering of the terrorists in Sigir, eliminating 9 of them instantly, while a building which was converted to a mosque and a storage facility was destroyed.

The source said that another air strike was conducted at Yarwa Kura, leading to the neutralising of 17 terrorists, while many others were wounded.

He said, “Both locations had earlier indicated a large presence of the adversaries after Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance missions.”

According to him, week-long sustained intensified intelligence-led Air Strikes, heavy artillary bombardment and ground, offensives by the Nigerian Military troops of Operation Hadin Kai on the identified hideouts and enclaves of the terrorists in the North Eastern Sambisa forest in Borno State have exerted so much pressure on the fighters and totally disoriented them.

“But as the jihadists continue to relocate from one hideout to another, the Air force, operating in concert with surface forces, will sustain its offensive against them until they are no more,” he said.
