FastNews reports that Nigerian troops killed four SWAP terrorists in Ngwom, Mafa Local Government Area, Borno state, on Tuesday evening.
At around 6:50 p.m., the terrorists sneaked into town on six gun trucks via a cattle crossing point within the Mafa axis, according to PRNigeria.
While the insurgents’ mission is unknown, there is a military formation on the axis.
A military intelligence told PRNigeria that the troops from the 195 Battalion Operation Hadin Kai in Jere were mobilized after receiving an alert on the movement of terrorists in the town.
“The troops from a Taskforce Battalion in Jere engaged the terrorists in the gun battle and eliminated some of them.
“As of now, we have counted four corpses of the invaders as we are still pursuing them and following the track of blood in the bush.
“After our clearance operation on their escape routes, by tomorrow morning may detailed updates can be provided,” the source concluded.
