As ISWAP and Boko Haram engage in gun combat in Borno State, 8 terrorists are killed
Eight fighters were killed in a brutal battle between Boko Haram and the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), including a middle rank commander known only as “Kundu.”
It was learned that many fighters from the Jama'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihad and ISWAP were hurt during the confrontation between the Dikwa and Bama Local Government Areas on September 15 as well.
An intelligence official claimed that Kundu and his group were on a robbery expedition when the ISWAP encountered them on six motorcycles, each carrying three militants, in Lake Chad, according to Zagazola Makama, a counterinsurgency expert and security analyst.
“A fierce battle broke out between the terrorists, leaving 8 Boko Haram terrorists dead while just a few ISWAP militants were hurt.
The remaining Boko Haram fighters turned around and fled, handing the ISWAP terrorists their motorcycles.
