Scores feared killed in Boko Haram, ISWAP clash

About 70 combatants and commanders were killed in a clash between Boko Haram and its rival terrorist group, ISWAP on Saturday.

Competent sources told The PASSIONSPUR that the in-fighting between the two terrorist rival groups worsened in recent times with a fresh flow of arms and combatants from the Sahel ISIS to join ISWAP in the Chad Basin to restrengthen control of the region by the terrorists.

With this development, both terrorist groups, according to reliable sources, have increased their torments on the Niger Republic section of the Lake Chad Basin, forcing numbers of Nigeria refugees in the neighbouring Francophone country to seep back home, leading to the gradual overcrowding of the IDPs camp at Damasak, Mobbar LGA of Borno State.

All along, each of the two rival groups not only wants to eliminate the other from the region but also confront the Multi-National Joint Task Force in a bid to establish firm control of the Chad Basin.

The Saturday Boko Haram-ISWAP clash, according to reports, took place at Tumbum Ali Island in Marte Local Government Area of Borno State around 2 pm.
