Names of ISWAP commanders killed Nigerian troops released

A list of Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) commanders that were gunned down by soldiers has been released.

The commanders were killed during an operation carried out by Nigerian troops in collaboration with Multinational Joint Task Force operatives weeks ago.

Soldiers reportedly stormed the camp of the terrorists, which harboured more than 3,000 fighters of the Abubakar Shekau’s faction of Boko Haram. This led to a gun battle which lasted for more than 3 hours.

A source told Daily Trust;

“Two terrorists were captured alive. During their testimonies, they confessed that the camp was led by top commanders led by one Abu Ikilima. Three Khayds (governors), three Munzul (commanding officers), 1 Nakib (commander) of the Boko Haram as well as several other fighters were neutralised.”
