ISWAP Kills Eight People In Maiduguri, Including 3 Soldiers by Omooba77: 12:10pm On Aug 12
Eight people, including three soldiers, were killed in jihadist attacks on an army base and village in northeast Nigeria ahead of Monday’s Eid al-Adha festival, military sources said.

Three troops and three civilians died on Saturday when fighters from the IS-aligned Islamic State West Africa Province group attacked a base in Gubio, a town 80 kilometres (50 miles) from the regional capital Maiduguri, two sources said Sunday.

Three soldiers were killed “defending the base from ISWAP terrorists who wanted to overrun it”, the first source said.

“Three civilians were hit and killed in crossfire,” said the source, an officer who asked not to be identified for fear of punishment.

Two soldiers and six civilians were injured, he said.



The jihadists attacked the base in eight pickup trucks fitted with machine guns, leading to a two-hour-long battle, said the second source, who gave the same toll.

The attack was repelled with the aid of a fighter jet which deployed two hours into the clashes, said the officer.

“The terrorists were pulverised and forced to withdraw. Eleven of them were killed and three of their vehicles were seized,” he said.

ISWAP ransacked the same base in May, killing three soldiers.

In a separate assault on Sunday, fighters from rival jihadist faction Boko Haram killed two residents and burnt homes in an attack on the village of Ngwom, 14 km (eight miles) from Maiduguri.

Gunmen in pickup trucks stormed the village in a pre-dawn attack, shooting dead two male residents before robbing women of jewelry and torching four houses, anti-Boko Haram militia leader Babakura Kolo said.

“A woman had one of her ears chopped off by the insurgents as punishment for resisting being robbed,” Kolo said.

The jihadists attempted to seize a nearby military base after the raid, but were rebuffed following a one-hour gunfight, Kolo and a military source said.

The decade-long insurgency in northeast Nigeria has killed over 27,000 people, displaced some two million and spilt over into neighbouring countries.

The jihadists are notorious for stepping up attacks during the Eid season, prompting heightened security across the region.

ISWAP split from the Boko Haram faction headed by long-time leader Abubakar Shekau in 2016.

Since mid-2018 ISWAP has ramped up attacks on the military, while Shekau’s group tends to hit softer civilian targets.

On Saturday, several soldiers were also wounded when their vehicle hit a mine planted by ISWAP near the border with Niger, the military sources said.

I thought PMB was going to call his boys to order. It's been almost 5 years na...

This country is something else... Igbos want to go their own way jejely because of violence against them, they get blown up, blockaded, and starved - and more recently, Python danced. Some Hausa/Fulani decide to violently recreate the country, and FG is treating them with kid gloves... for nearly 10 years.

Let this be a lesson - rather than talk - be well armed. FG and its soldiers are cowards and can only brutalize civilians.

The Nigerian army clearly lacks the capacity to defeat insurgency but they'd rather die in the midst of deceit and propaganda.

only Muslims can fight extremism but they don't know where to start because its roots are embedded in their religious constitution!

ISWAP is the face of terrorism in North- East Nigeria.

They are more sophisticated than their sister group, Boko-haram. It is evident from thier modus operandi.

The group backed by ISIS are a big threat, Boko-Haram may be defeated, but ISWAP are not.

Dont forget that Buhari paid Al-Barnawi millions of Euros to free the Dapchi girls, yet he came out to say he didn't pay a dime.

ISWAP strength should not be underestimated, they even collect taxes from locals as form of protection from cattle rustlers in the Lake Chad Basin.

The fight against terrorism in the North East have just begun, if you know, you know!

May all the evil and corrupt politicians sponsoring some bastards to perpetrate violence all over our darling nation , just to make our nation unruly, never know peace all the rest of their miserable lives.
Along with all those supporting them.
May every good things in life be far from them and their household.
Painful death awaits them all.
They can never escape it.

So shall it be.

Nigeria will win this war brought upon our country by evil and bastard presidents/leaders.

The moment we start taking the war to them that moment we start winning the war. As long as we're waiting for them to bring the fight to us, then we repel... this war can't never be won.

If I'm bringing a war to you, I'm coming fully prepared and I'm uploading everything I got, while you on the other side you're unprepared.

I wonder what's buratashi doing...

ISWAP again

Buhari na wetin this country do you? See how dumbness as a rtd Army General has cost Nigeria.

Tinubu, Oshio, Okorocha, Kenyama, Hell Rufai, Ngige, Kalu, Slyvia, Akande, Onu can you all see the bad market you sold for Nigeria

A rtd General with no single combat tactics very strange, extremely strange. Millitary authority must remove the word Rtd General from Buhari name he is nothing but but a coward infact a bloody civilian is 100 time better than Buhari in everything wallahi.

Apc I think una happy now bah?
