Nigeria Alerte de sécurité

ISWAP militants kill seven soldiers in ambush on military convoy in Marte LGA (Borno state) on November 26; further militant attacks likely in the state over the near term

TIMEFRAME expected from 28/11/2020, 12h00 until 30/11/2020, 11h59 (Africa/Lagos). COUNTRY/REGION Marte LGA (Borno state), Borno State, Nigeria


Islamic State-West Africa Province (ISWAP) militants claim to have killed seven soldiers and captured three others in an ambush on a military convoy in Borno state's Marte Local Government Area (LGA) on Thursday, November 26. The improvised explosive device (IED) attack occurred on the Marte-Dikwa road. Militants also allegedly destroyed two SUVs and stole ammunition in the attack. Nigerian military forces have not commented on the incident.

Security operations are possible in the vicinity of the incident in the coming days. Further militant attacks are likely across Borno state over the near term.


The northeastern region of Nigeria (i.e. the states of Borno, Yobe, and Adamawa) is highly susceptible to attacks by Islamist militants, including from Boko Haram and ISWAP. Though Nigerian military forces have pushed insurgents from much of their previously claimed territory, attacks have been on the rise since June 2017.


Those in Borno state are advised to monitor developments to the situation, remain vigilant for militant activity, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities and their home governments.
