The Nigerian military, on Tuesday, repelled a terrorists’ attack on Ngamdu, a border town between Yobe and Borno States.

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

The insurgents attempted to overrun a military base in the area but were stopped by soldiers already on alert.

The invasion by the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters was thwarted by Nigerian Air Force (NAF) fighter aircraft and Super Camp troops.

The sect members were said to have moved in a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) and gun trucks.

“As they approach, our troops swooped on them from the air and ground dealing decisively”, a source told PRNigeria.

The officer said troops carried out a mopping-up operation after the battle which left a number of terrorists dead.
