How ISWAP Terrorists Boldly Operate Checkpoints On Borno Roads— Commuters


A Borno-based teacher has disclosed that the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists are so free that they have placed checkpoints in the state.

According to the resident, the terrorists have been behaving with impunity in some parts of the state, as if security agencies do not exist. It was also revealed that the terrorist group has three checkpoints along Damboa-Biu Highway.

The teacher who is based in the Damboa Local Government Area of the state told Daily Trust that one of the terrorists gave their driver money and asked him to do something for him.

“They were so free and doing things as if it were normal,” he said.

“Our driver told us not to panic when he saw them approaching us. I was half dead but I summoned courage and the ISWAP fighter asked who am I? I told him that I am a petty trader and he asked me to buy detergents, bread and slippers for him. He gave our driver N7,200 and asked him to do something for him,” he said.

The report also said another commuter confirmed the presence of ISWAP fighters on roads in the area.

“They have three checkpoints along Damboa-Biu Highway.

“They normally stop commuters and search the car if there are any security personnel or humanitarian workers in the vehicles because they don’t treat them lightly,” the commuter said.
