Nigerian Army Launch Manhunt For Commanding Officer Of 93 Battalion Declared Missing In ISWAP Terrorists’ Ambush, 6 Soldiers Killed in Taraba State

The Nigerian Army have launched a manhunt for the Commanding Officer (CO) of 93 Battalion Takum, Taraba State, Northeast Nigeria whose convoy was ambushed by terrorists on his way to Jalingo, the State capital.

However, during the firefight that ensued over the ambush, troops of the Nigerian Army eliminated scores of suspected Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists at Tati village, Takum Local Government Area of the State.

But at least six soldiers were killed on the spot while troops on reinforcement also eliminated scores of ISWAP terrorists.

A source confirmed that the Commander Officer and one of his aides were declared missing after the attack.

According to the source, “there were other military operations in that axis where scores of terrorists were also killed especially at Ananum village in Donga on block force and from Marraraba on reinforcement.

“You know in such operations, especially where the enemies attacked suddenly, a tactical manoeuvre or withdrawal is permitted by commanders and troops to allow for reinforcement. While we are conducting a search and rescue operation, an aggressive military operation is also ongoing in the general area.

“Though the network in the area is poor for communication, we have evacuated the corpses of the soldiers.”
