Ten members of the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP) who escaped the wrath of Boko Haram insurgents in Kayowa and Toumbun Gini, the north-eastern communities in Lake Chad, have reportedly surrendered to the Niger Republic armed forces.

ISWAP fighters surrendered on Tuesday, January 10, after some were killed by Boko Haram members in different attacks.

Zagazola Makama reported that the sustained Boko Haram onslaught led by Abu Umaimah, had led to the destruction of the strategic bases of ISWAP in Toumbum Allura,  Kurnawa, Kayowa, and Toumbun Gini.

ISWAP’s Abu Moussab al-Barnawi and other commanders have also been forced to flee over the attacks.

The publication reported;

“The continued rivalry clash between JAS and ISWAP seems unending as several efforts by the groups to join forces against the Nigerian military and MNJTF appears impossible.

“It is against this backdrop that ISWAP is desperately seeking the support of foreign ISIS mercenaries from Mali, Burkina Faso, and Somalia to help them defeat the JAS.”

The publication further revealed that Albarnawwy returned to Lake Chad on January 10 with 300 fighters to announce a major onslaught against the Boko Haram terrorist groups.

Zagazola Makama  added that the development had influenced military operations positively, and Operation Hadin Kai could leverage the clashes to sustain its operation to finally decimate terrorists’ activities in the region.
