A counteroffensive launched by the Nigerian Army in the Askira Uba Local Government Area of Borno State has resulted in the deaths of at least 50 Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) commanders, according to the Nigerian Army’s Operation Hadin Kai.

The assault on the troops’ camp on Saturday was carried out by ISWAP militants after the Commander of the 28th Task Force Brigade, Brig-Gen Dzarma Zirkusu, and three soldiers were killed in the first attack.

However, in a counter strike, the forces destroyed the terrorists’ Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle and gun trucks, eliminated 50 leaders, and numerous other ISWAP militants were also killed in the process.

Brigade-Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, spokesman for the Nigerian Army, revealed in a statement that soldiers from the 115 Task Force Battalion launched morning exploitation operations in the vicinity of Leho village and its surrounds.

It was also mentioned that forces uncovered three bodies of fleeing terrorists and collected 2,560 rounds of 7.62mm Special ammunition as well as 29 rounds of 7.62mm NATO ammunition that had been abandoned by the terrorists.

The Joint Task Force, North East (NE) Operation HADIN KAI (OPHK) has neutralized more than 50 Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists and destroyed numerous of their combat equipment in a violent counteroffensive in Askira Uba Local Government Area in Borno State, according to Nwachukwu.

“During the counter-offensive, forces were able to remove key ISWAP officers as well as foot men.

Furthermore, the courageous soldiers destroyed the terrorists’ Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicle as well as multiple gun trucks with devastating results. “

“It should be remembered that on November 13, 2021, the 115 Task Force Battalion came face to face with ISWAP terrorists in Askira Uba, during which the soldiers courageously maintained their position and then launched a violent counter-attack.

The Commander of Task Force 28 Brigade, along with three of his men, paid the ultimate price as they reinforced forces to defend the site, which was unfortunate.

In addition to one MRAP truck and 11 Gun Trucks, the forces damaged a variety of other equipment.

They also discovered a substantial stockpile of weapons and ammunition, including five gun trucks, two anti-aircraft guns, five AK-47 rifles, one HK Machine Gun, and one HK Machine Gun link.”

Troops from the 115th Task Force Battalion launched a morning raid on Leho village and its surrounds, where they uncovered three bodies of fleeing terrorists and seized 2,560 rounds of 7.62mm Special and 29 rounds of 7.62mm NATO ammunition that had been abandoned by the terrorists.
