Thirty-five members of the Islamic State of West African Province have been eliminated by Boko Haram insurgents during a battle at the Lake Chad region.

A source told Punch that the clash followed a series of intensive attacks by Boko Haram combatants led by five of the group’s commanders, most notably Abu Umaimah, on the ISWAP strongholds.

During the fight at Lake Chad island of Toumbun Gini, Boko Haram seized a large number of weapons from the ISWAP fighters while chasing them out of their enclaves.

Another source told the publication that the sustained attacks by Boko Haram pushed high-profile ISWAP leaders into holding a meeting at Tumbun Murhu to discuss the inability of the group to carry out major attacks during the Yuletide as planned earlier.
