He said the Boko Haram Buduma factions which had an upper hand against ISWAP in the recent turn of events captured most of the enclaves of ISWAP, forcing them to take refuge in a more fortified hideouts in the axis of Kukawa and Madayi and Kwatan Mota.

“Their recent upper hand against the ISWAP was achieved due to the fact that some aggrieved ISWAP fighters had left the group to join forces with the Boko Haram Buduma Faction,” he said.

“These captives were later taken to an underground prison cell at KWATAN MOTA close to Dogon Chukwu where they were held as Prisoners of War.”

The latest supremacy battle between the terrorists reportedly occurred on Monday.
