While confirming about the reports of the incident, in Maiduguri, a counter-insurgency expert in the Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, revealed that the commanders were executed in a silent operation of ISWAP terrorists.

He revealed that the bodies of those who were killed were found in their homes during the early hours of September 18, 2022.

Besides the neutralisation of the commanders, 70 Boko Haram terrorists were mobilised in two groups, from the Mafa, Karkut, Shiwai, lawe Kanuriye, Kirwa and Amtifur axis, to wage reprisal attacks against ISWAP.

Meanwhile, Makama added that, “But the Boko Haram terrorists, however, came under another heavy attack, killing an unspecified number of them.”

He mentioned that this led the Boko Haram fighters to scamper in different directions, as some of them, along with their weapons, were captured.

At the same time, Makama has elaborated that with a series of attacks on the Boko Haram faction in the last two months of July and August, the fighters are currently in disarray and incapable of fighting the military of Nigeria and the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) in the region of Lake Chad.
