ISIS has been intensifying its attacks in Borno for the last few weeks. On March 3, the group announced that its fighters had stormed the towns of Dkua and Bukarty.
ISIS terrorists killed nine Nigerian service members during the attacks in the two towns, which targeted several posts, government buildings and UN facilities. The terrorists also burned 12 armored vehicles and captured four pickups.
Despite making much efforts, Nigerian government forces are yet to contain ISIS’ growing threat in Borno. The terrorist group, which is getting bolder, may soon attempt to hold ground.
