Top ISWAP Commander Abou Sadiqou Buorubouru has been confirmed killed following a clash between Islamic State fighters and Boko Haram insurgents in Lake Chad.
During the encounter, Boko Haram insurgents destroyed four gun trucks belonging to ISWAP.
In early January 2022, not less than 200 fighters were killed as the Sani Shurama-led ISWAP fighters and Boko Haram insurgents under the Bakoura faction clashed in Sambisa forest, Borno State.
This was after multiple casualties were recorded on December 7, 2021, following an intense clash between fighters of ISWAP and Boko Haram loyal to the Bakoura faction in Lake Chad, Borno State.
It would be recalled that on October 30, the heavily armed Bakoura-led Buduma fighters from Chad and Niger Republic infiltrated Loko Lybie village, Lake Chad islands, in about 30 canoes.
Their arrival in the Lake Chad Basin is thought to be linked to the current supremacy struggle between the Bakoura-led Buduma forces and ISWAP.
Recall that in September 2021, the two terrorist factions clashed on Lake Chad, leaving scores of insurgents dead.
