85 terrorists killed as Boko Haram, ISWAP clashes in Borno

No fewer than 85 terrorists were killed in another series of clashes between the Islamic State of the West African Province (ISWAP) and its counterpart (Boko Haram) terrorists in the northeast of Lake Chad of Borno State.

Nigeriacrime.com gathered that intensified clashes of supremacy which raged between April 24 and 25, 2024, have led to the dislodgement of the Boko Haram rival faction from several Islands previously seized from the ISWAP groups. Reliable Sources have said on Friday.

Impeccable sources also confirmed to Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in the Lake Chad region that “shortly after the terrorists encounter in Kukawa axis, on April 24, 2024, ISWAP mobilized to reinforce its fighters stationed at Tumbum Allura, recaptured recently from JAS elements who desire to carry out reprisals to recover the island.”

The sources said ISWAP fighters were also moved from Sabon Tumbu and Kirta Wulgo towards Tumbum Allura, Daban Wanzam, and Abuja Ruwa with over 30 boxes of suspected ammunition and weapons.

“The intense clashes resumed as ISWAP launched another attack on Boko Haram at Tudun ShawakkiI, Tumbum Bakwarram, Mallam Basiru and Kwaleram killing several Boko Haram fighters.

“On April 25, ISWAP launched another attack on the position of Boko Haram at Kandahar and Tumbum Ali Island in Marte LGA. The gunfight ensued from 1 am to 5 am Friday, April 26, 2024.

“The ISWAP eventually gained upper hand against the Boko Haram killing over 70 of them and capturing several others alive with their weapons.” Sources confirmed.

The incessant, and ever-worsening, clashes between ISWAP and Boko Haram according to investigation have continued to provide better opportunities for government security forces to craft strategies to exterminate the two rival groups and stamp out the terror scorching around the shores of the Lake Chad Basin.
