The Nigeria Army has suffered a setback in the right against insurgency in the North East as the dare devil Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) wing of jBoko Haram have reportedly attacked a military formation in Borno.
The attack occurred Tuesday evening at Kwamdi village in Damboa Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
The daring terrorists stormed the military formation in 10 utility vehicles and carted away weapons.
The ISWAP fighters also set ablaze some military equipment after a gun duel with the troops.
It was gathered that the terrorists burnt down one Amour Personnel Carrier (APC) and a gun truck as they carted away an unspecified number of weapons.
Hamidu Abu, a member of the Civilian Joint Task Force (JTF), told DailyTrust that Boko Harm targeted the military camp and not residents residing in the southern axis of the state.
According to him, the military formation was razed down by the terrorists as they made away with arms and ammunition.
“They came at about 4:00 p.m. and due to the sand storms, it was difficult for soldiers to repel them.
They burnt down the base including APC and four other vehicles,” the local vigilante said.
