Seven members of Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP were killed as troops foiled attacks by terrorists at School of Special Forces and Buni Yadi town in Yobe State on Sunday.
The Special Forces worked with the Air Task Force of the Nigerian Military to foil the terrorist attack on their school.
But according to PRNigeria, seven ISWAP insurgents were eliminated when the troops again repelled a separate attack on civilian population at Buni Yadi, a popular town in the North East State.
According to military intelligence sources, the attackers stormed the town at about 5pm, in two different groups.
One of the group attacked from ‘Charly Company’, while other terrorist group attempted to attack the School of Special Forces.
“The terrorists used cows as their shield in order to gain easy access without being noticed, but their evil plan and strategy were unraveled by the troops, who quickly engaged them in a gun battle,” one of the intelligence source told PRNigeria.
The source, while speaking further, said: “The ISWAP fighters, however, succumbed to the superior fire-power of our military troops and attempted to flee.
“But in the process, seven of them were gunned down, while two vehicles were destroyed”.
