More than 20 Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters died Wednesday evening in Ngamdu, Borno State.

The insurgents were eliminated by ground forces and airstrikes during an attempt to breach a military motorcade.

ISWAP commanders, Yaya Ebraheem, Baba Chattimari and Abu Adam Oubaida led the assault on the convoy and a Forward Operating Base (FOB).

The Jaysh (Army) Deputy Leader in Sambisa, Modou Bacheer Okocha was wounded, an intelligence officer told PRNigeria on Thursday.

He said troops were moving from Damaturu to Maiduguri when they were alerted about an imminent attack.

The contingent made a detour to reinforce the base after sending signals to the Air Force for support.

As they passed through Ngamdu, a border town between Borno and Yobe States, the terrorists opened fire but were defeated.

Fighter jets bombarded ISWAP locations and gun trucks killed many of them. Four soldiers paid the supreme price.
