Boko Haram allegedly kills ISWAP fighters at border of Niger Republic

Boko Haram terrorists have allegedly killed Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters in Sunawa village, a border area with the Niger Republic.

Al Thabat, disclosed that the battle occurred after ISWAP abducted dozens of Boko Haram women.

“Boko Haram fighters subsequently attacked the ISWAP border base and rescued their women from captivity,” Al Thabat added.

Meanwhile, the Director, Army Public Relations, Brig-Gen. Mohammed Yerima, disclosed on Monday February 22, 2021 in Maiduguri, Borno State that ISWAP broke off from the Abubakar Shekau-led Boko Haram in 2016.

“Since then, a bitter war of attrition and violent confrontations have been occurring between the factions of terror,” Yerima said.

He noted that the incident continued to expose the “disorganised and disoriented” nature of terrorists in the Lake Chad region.

The recent operations under the Chief of Army Staff, Maj-Gen. Ibrahim Attahiru has continued to dismantle all logistics and operational bases of the insurgents in Lake Chad Basin and Sambisa Forest, he added.
