Boko Haram Iswap Terrorists Abandon Trucks And Weapons After Military Ambush

According to the Nigerian Army, Boko Haram Iswap terrorists were ambushed by gallant troops of 5 Brigade during a routine patrol near Damasak town in Borno State.

Damasak is a garrison town and the capital of the Mobbar Local Government Area (LGA), with a population of approximately 56,000 people, including approximately 10,000 internally displaced people (IDPs) living in camps and the host community.
