He said that Al Thabat, in a statement, said Jama’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihad, commonly known as Boko Haram, killed ISWAP insurgents in the village of Sunawa on the Nigeria-Niger border.

“The battle happened after ISWAP abducted many women linked to Boko Haram.

“The group subsequently attacked the ISWAP base and rescued the women.

In his words: “It will be recalled that ISWAP broke off from the Shekau led Boko Haram in 2016, and since then, a bitter war of attrition and violent confrontations between both factions have been recurrent.

“This incident has once again exposed the disorganised and disoriented nature of these criminals.”

Yerima said that the Nigerian Army in recent operations continued to destroy all logistics and operational bases of the terrorists along the Lake Chad Basin axis and Sambisa forest.
