Legit.ng gathered that the troops had launched a major onslaught against ISWAP fighters in the Lake Chad and fringes of Sambisa forest.

Soldiers had stormed the camp of the terrorists, which harboured more than 3,000 fighters of the Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram. The fighters had joined ISWAP after the terrorist sect killed Shekau in 2021.

It was learned that the troops and the terrorists were locked in a gun battle that lasted for more than three hours. Two terrorist commanders were reportedly arrested by the troops.
