At least 10 members of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) armed group, including their top Commanders have been executed by its affiliate, Boko Haram, officially known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād (JAS).
POLITICS NIGERIA learned that the incident occurred in the North East of Lake Chad recently.
The Bakura Buduma-led Boko Haram faction in Lake Chad overwhelmed the ISWAP insurgents in a gun battle which resulted in the killing of many fighters in the river bank between Kadunan Ruwa and Kandahar axis of Niger Republic.
Many fighters reportedly drowned in the water while ten ISWAP fighters were apprehended alive by the Buduma-led faction. Also, two ISWAP top commanders were interrogated before being taken to an unknown destination and slaughtered.
A top ranking officer of the Buduma group said in a video that God has continued to give them the opportunity to defeat their enemies (ISWAP).
His words: “We are the Mujahideens from the Jama’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihad faction in Lake Chad. As you are aware, there have been an intensified infighting between we and our enemies for the past few months and Allah has been giving us victories to eliminate them.
“We have arrested about ten of them including some of their top commanders and we have asked them why they are waging war against us. And the Commander said, they don’t have any reason but they are just fighting us.
“Initially, we are doing the same thing and practicing the same religion before you deviated from all the teachings.
“We are therefore assuring you that Almighty God will continue to give us victory to eliminate all of you from the surface of earth.”
The violent clashes between the two groups of the terrorists has continued, especially in the axis of Lake Chad, Abadam, Niger Republic, Sambisa forest and Mandara Mountain, with many casualties recorded so far on both sides within the last one year.
In March, the JAS terrorists loyal to Buduma, ambushed and eliminated about 45 terrorists in Yauma Wango and Ngaama, in Abadam Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno State in Nigeria.
