The Nigerian Military’s Operation Hadin under the Ouspicious of Operation i Sahel Sanity have eliminated scores of Boko Haram/ ISWAP in Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
Following a tip-off on movement of terrorists through Ambiya general area on Friday night, Zagazola gathered that the Nigerian Airforce Dispatched its aircraft with support from ground troops engaged the terrorists and eliminated scores of them.
The sustained Intensified Operations Under the Ouspicious of Operation Sahel Sanity has continued to triggered massive displacement and migration of Boko Haram/ISWAP in the LCB and Sambisa forest due to fear of bombardment.
The wounded. and surviving terrorists moved toward Talala, Mungusum, Abbah Bakari and Buk villages in Damboa general Axis.
Sources said that those hiding around Ngulde rock in the axis of Chibok as well as Bale were moving to seek hiding positions at Mandara Mountain, Gargash, Izza, Bula Bakakai and Gobara camps.
On 11 February, ISWAP were sighted on
9 vehicles and 9 motorcycles with their families at Gudumbali while running towards Zari. It was expected that they were heading toward Tumban gini axis enabled cross over to a safer positions in Niger Republic.
The current sustained battlefield impact is pushing a self-destruct amongst jihadist leadership setting ‘the cat amongst the pidgins’ targeting mainly Jihadist hideouts in the complex mountain and complex Islands of the Lake Chad Axis. As jihadist continue to relocate from one hideout to another, the risk of exposure and battlefield elimination increases.
These unsettling changes within Boko Haram ISWAP jihadist leadership present an opportunity for all Local, State and regional hands to be on deck in the global war on terror.
