An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that the suspect, known as Goni Fandam, had been on the radar of security services since last year before he was eventually nabbed while spying on the location of troops in Borno.

PRNigeria could not confirm when the casualty was recorded after it had earlier reported that the troops of the Nigerian military in Nigerian Air Force attack jets on Sunday foiled an attack by Boko Haram Terrorists

The insurgents, on foot and in several trucks fitted with machine guns, attacked Nigerian soldiers outside the town of Wulgo as well as Cameroonian soldiers deployed from across the border to assist.

PRNigeria gathered that troops of Sector 1 Operation Lafiya Dole, led by the Commanding Officer of 3 Battalion, Lieutenant Colonel Samson Olaseigbe, who were on a clearance patrol in the area, cleared Gulwa village with little or no resistance from the terrorists and proceeded to Musiri District, where they engaged in heavy gun battle with another set of terrorists, which lasted for an hour.
