After a bloody fight between Abubakar Shekau-led Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West Africa Province erupted, many terrorists were left dead (ISWAP).
The Director, Public Relations of the Army, Brig.-Gen. Mohammed Yerima revealed this in a statement in Abuja on Monday.
Yerima said Al Thabat, an al-Qaida affiliated media outfit, had revealed the incident that took place in a border area between Nigeria and the Niger Republic.
He said that in a statement, Al Thabat said that Jama’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihad, commonly known as Boko Haram, killed ISWAP insurgents on the border between Nigeria and Niger in the village of Sunawa.
The fight occurred after ISWAP kidnapped dozens of women linked to Boko Haram, he said.
