ISWAP storms Boko Haram enclave, kill 6 seizes weapons
By: Zagazola Makama
In what appeared to be a continuation of their sustained inter-rivalry clash, the fighters of the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) has at the weekend attacked the enclaves of the Jamā’at Ahlil Sunnah lid-Da’wah wal-Jihād, aka Boko Haram, during which six of them were reportedly killed.
ISWAP had in a silent operation stormed the home of Boko Haram insurgents in Gajibo, a town 95km northeast of Maiduguri, Borno state capital, and slaughtered six whom they declared as “infidels”.
An Intelligence source told Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad, that the attackers also recovered five AK 47 riffles from the Boko Haram terrorists.
ISWAP had carried out many successful attacks against Boko Haram terrorists in its sustained feuds, which caused the group a huge casualty and loss of war assets.
The worsening of inter-rivalry clashes, between jihadist groups, may lead them to irreversible self-destruction as the revolting ISWAP had vowed to battle more with members of its former main body than even with the Nigerian troops.
