Troopers of 29 task force brigade of Operation Hadin Kai have reportedly arrested  13 Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) suspected logistics suppliers in Borno

Zagazola Makama, a publication focused on the Lake Chad region, said the suspects were arrested on Tuesday during a raid by the troops and the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) of the Benishiek market, Kaga LGA.

The publication quoted a source as saying that the suspects were intercepted while conveying large quantities of fuel and food items for ISWAP.

“Benisheikh and Jakana in Kaga Local Government Areas had remained one of the largest hubs of logistics supplies for the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists for many years,” a source told Zagazola Makama.


The source said logistic suppliers do stock up on essential supplies for the terrorist groups around the area.

“During every market day, the insurgents’ merchants usually go to the market to buy varieties of food items, fuel, sim cards, clothes, and other items for the terrorists.

“The troops had in many cases intercepted the bad elements working for the terrorists.”


The troops of operation Hadin Kai have sustained an onslaught on the members of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) and other insurgent groups in the state.
