29 task force brigade of Operation Hadin Kai has arrested 13 suspected logistics suppliers of the Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) in Borno, according to Zagazola Makama, a publication focusing on the Lake Chad region.


The suspects were apprehended during a joint raid by the troops and the Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) of the Benishiek market, Kaga LGA, on Tuesday.

A source stated that the suspects were intercepted while transporting a large amount of fuel and food supplies for ISWAP.

“Benisheikh and Jakana in Kaga Local Government Areas had remained one of the largest hubs of logistics supplies for the Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists for many years,” according to the source.

The source added that the area is often used as a stock-up point for essential supplies by the terrorists and that during market days, terrorists’ merchants regularly purchase items such as food, fuel, sim cards, clothes, and other supplies.

The troops of Operation Hadin Kai have been targeting ISWAP and other insurgent groups in the region.
