Troops of operation Hadin Kai have reportedly repelled an attack by the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) in Monguno LGA of Borno.

The insurgents were said to have broken into a humanitarian aid organisation compound in the community.

According to Zagazola Makama, a publication focused on the Lake Chad, the insurgents started shooting sporadically in the compound around 1am on Thursday.

Sources said the humanitarian aid workers in the community were the target of the insurgents in the attack.


“After failing to find any of the workers  in the compound, they burnt 18 vehicles mostly SUVs and vandalised two other vehicles,” a source was quoted as saying.

“The terrorists also attempted to cart away with three 4X4 hilux vehicles but met a stiff resistance by the troops of Sector 3 Operation Hadin Kai who engaged them in a heavy gunbattle.

“They abandoned the vehicles during intense exchange of fire with the Special Forces  before retreating.”


The development comes weeks after troops of operation Hadin Kai repelled an attack by Boko Haram insurgents in the state.

An ambush laid by the insurgents failed when the troops from the operation’s 21 armoured brigade engaged the insurgents between Kumshe and Bama area of Borno.
