In a major attack in Lake Chad, troops from the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) killed Ammar Bin-Umar, a prominent leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).



The terror group's top commander was reportedly dispatched to the Tumbuns in Lake Chad to organize attacks for the Islamic State West Africa (ISWAP) against targets in Nigeria, Niger, Chad, and Cameroon.

According to the report, the elimination of the top ISIS commander was confirmed by a military intelligence officer, who revealed that on April 14, 2022, coordinated airstrikes by Nigerian Air Force Super Tucano jets were in conjunction with the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF), the Niger Air Task Force's Mi35 and Mi171 helicopter gunship at Arinna in Marte.

He was reportedly killed while trying to flee Lake Chad as a result of the week-long sustained onslaught on the terrorists by a combined team of Operation Desert Sanity and the MNJTF Lake Sanity on some Boko Haram/ISWAP strongholds in which over a hundred terrorists, as well as ten of their commanders, have so far been neutralized.

According to the report, Ammar Bin-Umar was one of the top ISIS Mujahedeen’s dialogue committee deployed to the Boko Haram/Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) caliphates in February 2022 to broker peace between the two warring factions, fighting over supremacy among the Jam’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihd of Boko Haram factions and the ISWAP.
