Airstrikes by the Multinational Joint Task Force have eliminated Abubakar Dan-Buduma, a top-ranking Islamic State West Africa Province, ISWAP, Commander, and 19 other terrorists in Nigeria’s North-East of Lake Chad.

Dan-Buduma and his foot soldiers were eliminated in a coordinated intelligence-led ground and aerial bombardment by the Nigeriene Air Task Force, under Operation Hadin Kai and Multi-National Joint Task Force in Kwalaram Village in Marte Local Government Area of Borno State.

Some of the appointed commanders included Abubakar Dan-Buduma to oversee Bakkassi Buningil and Doron Buhari; Muhammed Ba’ana for Kirta; Mohamet Aliamir for Kwalaram; Bakura Gana for Jubularam; Malam Musa for Jubularam; and Mohamadu Mustapha for Marte.

Abubakar Dan-Buduma, who had replaced Muhammed Ba’ana, was the ISWAP’s Chief Naval Officer commanding the waterways of Kirta, Bakassi, Buningil, and Doron Buhari, in Marte LGA of Borno State.
