On March 11, ISIS announced that its fighters in northeastern Nigeria had foiled a large-scale anti-terrorist campaign by the Nigerian Armed Forces (NAF).

ISIS has most certainly exaggerated the outcome of the battle in Algarno forests. However, there are little doubts that the terrorist group is growing stronger in northeastern Nigeria, mainly in Borno. Some of the group’s cells recent operations included:

  • An attack on a patrol of the NAF in the town of Malm Futuri on March 10. Ten service members were killed or injured in the attack, which was carried out with two improvised explosive devices.

Unlikely. More likely that jihadists gone wild are a plague on the world, along with islam in most of its forms.

To foil these attacks the gov’t will need the help of the people to be ears and eyes and give these groups away where ever they assemble.
Unfortunately the Nigerian gov’t hasn’t shown much respect for its people over the years, which will reflect on the help it receives from the population.
People tend not to forget gov’ts when they hang activists who were just trying to stop dodgy Shell oil wells from polluting their environment.

A unit similar to the Selous Scouts is required, I think.
The Selous Scouts adapted to the terrain they were fighting in.

Nigerian soldiers cruising around bush country making a lot of noise in large slab sided armoured busses is a really stupid thing to do.
