Troops of Operation Hadin Kai have foiled an attack by members of the Islamic State West Africa (ISWAP) on a camp housing repentant members of Boko Haram.

Spokesperson of the Army, Onyema Nwachukwu, made this known in a statement on Sunday.

According to him, the terrorists made attempt to access the camp in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State but were resisted by superior gun power.

The attack is coming on the heels of reported massive surrendering by members of the terrorist group.

Thousands of terrorists alongside their family members have recently repented and handed over themselves to authorities.

President Muhammudu Buhari had , on Friday, during a nationwide address commemorating Nigeria’s 61st anniversary, stated that about 8,000 terrorists had surrendered.

The latest attack according to the army could be an attempt to discourage intending surrendering terrorists from laying down their arms.
