The Nigerian Armed Forces Air Force and Special Forces have foiled an attack by terrorists from the Islamic State of West Africa province, ISWAP, against security formations and the civilian population in the city of Buni Yadi.
The troops, PRNigeria learned, were deployed to repel some ISWAP fighters who stormed Buni Yadi, a major city in Yobe state, on Tuesday night.
Terrorists completely razed a police station, prior to the intervention of military troops, sources revealed.
PRNigeria concluded that the terrorists had initially stood their ground, refusing to leave the Yobe community, despite the massive deployment of Special Forces troops.
According to a military intelligence source, ISWAP fighters engaged troops in what appeared to be a “serious” shootout.
