The world's deadliest terrorist group, the Islamic state of Iraq and Syria has claimed responsibility over the attack on Nigeria soldiers in the north east last week which allegedly claimed the lives of 11 soldiers in Borno state.

The source from the group said its men were responsible for the attack on Friday in Gajigana town. ISIS through its network on Saturday uploaded some pictures of burnt barracks and dead bodies in social media which it claimed belonged to the soldiers.

Our source confirmed that the terrorists stormed the town with motorbike at about 6:30pm and open fire on the residents as well as the military, they took to their heels as soon as the military called for air support from the air force and reinforcement from the military barracks in neighbouring town.

In recent time, Islamic state of west Africa province, an affiliate of ISIS has been carried out series of attack in Nigeria especially in the north. The group is splinter group from boko haram in 2016. They have been waging war in the northern part of Nigeria especially in the North East.  Although Federal government of Nigeria had on December 2015 claimed that it had technically defeated boko haram. Yet the group has killed well over 30,000 people and displace over 2million Nigerians.

While attack in most parts of the country seems to have ceased, bombings seems to have continued unabatedly in the North East particularly Borno state.

Source from the military blamed the recent insurgency attack on lack of cooperation as well as dirty politics taking place among the rank and files of Nigeria's top military brass.

A source from the military hierarchy, however admitted that the attack was true, "We lost a lot of men he said but unfortunately the truths are being hidden from the press. Normally, in the military operations when there is a joints mission, the chief of defence staff is supposed to be in charge but unfortunately, things have fallen apart. The chief of army staff is the one calling all the shots at the moment. And there is a lack of synergy among the service Chiefs".

But when the military director of information Col. Onyeama Nwachukwu was contacted on telephone, he declined comments, saying the military had recorded several successes in their various operations. However, he revealed that, in a simultaneous operation code-named 'Operation Hardstrike' the troops of 121 and 192 Battalions of Operation Lafiya in collaboration with Civilian JTF and local Vigilante, have cleared Surdewalla, Ranwa, Baladayo, Sabon Gari and Shetimeri villages in Borno state.

The troops reportedly repelled the terrorists by killing three of their men in Ranwa 11, while many were wounded and others escaped. The source confirmed to us that the troops of 192 Battalion advanced along Sabon Gari and Shetimeri villages where they cleared out some boko haram terrorists and destroyed a shelter hot suspected to belongs to the insurgents.

However, Col. Nwachukwu added that two soldiers were wounded during an encounter with the insurgents at Gajigana town by troops of 212 Tank Battalion.

In addition, 177 Task Force Battalion in collaboration with the Civilian JTF cleared Mboa, Mboa-Kura, Yarchida, Bombula, Tshata and Bamzir Villages. At Furfur village, troops exchanged fire with boko haram terrorists which led to the death of one of the terrorists and recovery of one Ak47 rifle, three magazines, 50 rounds of 7.62mm special ammunition and one magazine bandolier.
