Credible information has indicated that the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) has launched a massive attack in Mainahari community near Wakabiu in Biu Local Government Area of Borno State.

According to a source from the Biu army barracks, the insurgents threw bombs to the village around 3:00 this afternoon which alerted the army of the impending attack.

However, the insurgents were successfully repelled by men of the Nigerian Army.

“We were at the barracks when we began to hear sounds of bombs around 3pm. Then we heard that they were trying to enter Mainahari village near Wakabiu, but the army was on alert and they immediately engaged the insurgents.

“There was no casualty on the side of the Nigerian Army but we were told the army killed scores of the insurgents, seized a gun truck and many ammunition from the fleeing insurgents,”Zainab Buba, a civilian source at the Biu army barracks stated.

Zainab said the insurgents, having been overpowered by superior firepower of the Nigerian Army, retreated in disarray while the soldiers went in pursuit of the fleeing insurgents.
