Terrorists from the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād on Sunday attacked the Army Special Super Camp at Ngamdu, a border town between.
Borno and Yobe States, killing over 6 soldiers, military sources told SaharaReporters.
Ngamdu is under Kaga Local Government Area of Borno and about 100km to the capital, Maiduguri.
SaharaReporters gathered that the terrorists came in no fewer than 10 gun trucks and could not be counted.
A source said about six Nigerian soldiers were killed, while others including the Brigadier General in-charge of the camp, were injured.
The insurgents also went away with a military operational vehicle, different arms and ammunition.
