The Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) terrorists were attacked in retaliation by the Jam’at Ahlil Sunnah lid-Da’wah wal-Jihd, also known as Boko Haram, who killed a large number of them in Konduga Local Government Area in Borno State.
It was learned that the raid on the ISWAP camps in Bole and Yale on October 24 was organized by Boko Haram terrorists, who just suffered an unparalleled setback at the hands of their ISWAP counterpart.
Remember that the ISWAP invaded the Boko Haram stronghold in Gajibo, a town 95 kilometers from Maiduguri, the capital of Borno state, during a covert operation last week and killed six Boko Haram militants whom they dubbed “infidels.”
Zagazola Makama, a counter-insurgency expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad, who confirmed the attacks, said that the Boko Haram terrorists who vowed to revenge the killings of its Mujahedeens dispatched 60 fighters from Abu-Iklima’s camp to attack ISWAP terrorists.
The sources according to Makama, said that the Boko Haram fighters overrun the ISWAP insurgents, killing scores of them and recovered their weapons, motorcycles, money and other items, after a serious battle.
The source said, “The Boko Haram outnumbered the ISWAP terrorists as they were firing from three different positions.
“They also later razed the makeshift houses of the ISWAP terrorists after making a sizeable number of them to retreat amidst the intensive gun battle.
“But as the Boko Haram were returning from the attack, the ISWAP laid an ambush against them and killed 3 of them while others retreated.”
