According to a tweet by Zagazola (@ZagazOlaMakama), a security analyst and counter insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, Maliya Ibrahim Sai’d, was killed when his vehicle stepped on an Improvised Explosive Device (IED).

According to Zagazola, the late Maliya’s men displayed great bravery when they ambushed Boko Haram terrorists during one of their attacks on Biu, Borno State.

His men nutrialized scores of them, and retrieved their guntrucks and weapons.

More than 700 CJTF have paid the supreme price for defending their land from BHT/ ISWAP terrorists.

The CJTF has continued to provide support for troops and especially in the Lake Chad region where the insurgents have their strongholds.

However, Boko Haram/ISWAP fighters have continued to attack troops in the surrounding area, with ambushes becoming a more common strategy.

The Nigerian Army has also adopted a policy in which military personnel have moved from smaller locations in cities and villages in favor of concentrating soldiers in “super camps” that are easier to defend against Boko Haram/ISWAP attacks.

Although the concentration of soldiers allows for mobile counter-insurgency operations, the military maneuvers itself provide Boko Haram/ISWAP fighters with ambush options.
