  The Nigerian Army had confirmed the killing of Senior Officer, Brigadier General Dzarma Zirkusuin in a battle with ISWAP.

  According to a release by the army spoke person, Brig. Gen. Onyema Nwachukwu, which reads thus:

  Troops of Joint Task Force, North East Operation HADIN KAI have neutralized several Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists during a recent encounter in Askira Uba Local Government Area of Borno State. In the fierce encounter which is still raging as at the time of filing this report, troops supported by the Air Component of OPHK have destroyed five A – Jet, two A-29, two Dragon combat vehicles and nine Gun Trucks.
