Members of Boko Haram/ISWAP reportedly attacked the military Super Camp in Ngamdu in Borno State on Thursday, according to reports.
Within Nigeria, it has been learned that the tragedy forced people of Ngamdu to flee to neighboring communities in Yobe, while others sought refuge in the forest for their protection.
One of the drivers on the Maiduguri/Damaturu highway, Modu Ngamdu, who was there throughout the attack and who identified himself as a witness, revealed that passengers traveling between Maiduguri and Damaturu were stranded during the attack, which lasted more than an hour.
In response to the exchange of gunfire between soldiers and rebels, many residents fled to nearby villagers in Yobe, while others fled to the surrounding bush, according to the driver of the vehicle.
Modu, on the other hand, claims that the insurgents did not come to the town, but rather targeted the military Super Camp. Modu is correct.
In addition, he stated that the militants were able to identify an Air Force plane that was able to rebuff them for quite some time.
‘ We heard the sound of heavy gunfire around the Super Camp, where the military was staying, as early as 1pm, ‘ said the witness.
Many residents in town fled towards Yobe as a result of the exchange of fire and the sound of gunshots, but they did not arrive in the town itself. There were no attacks on civilians.
According to Ngamdu, ” we continued to hear the sound of gunshots until a fighter plane came and blasted them. ”
According to a security source, the insurgents arrived in the camp via the Goniri road, which runs from the south- eastern direction.
According to the source, an unidentified number of rebels were killed during the operation. The informant went on to say that one of the soldiers paid the ultimate sacrifice.
