At least 214 fugitive Boko Haram militants have laid down their arms and surrendered to the Nigerian army in the northeast of the country after a deadly clash with rival terror group ISWAP, local media reported. ISWAP militants reportedly carried out several attacks against Boko Haram fighters in Mantari and Maimusari in Bama, Borno State. The group dislodged Boko Haram members, killing many and forcing those who managed to escape to flee their camps. Following the attack, Boko Haram fighters who fled the battlefield reportedly surrendered to Nigerian troops based in Konduga and Banki, Borno State. Earlier this month, the Nigerian military ordered Boko Haram and ISWAP terrorists in the North East region to lay down their arms. The military has urged the terrorists to emulate other insurgents who have already surrendered to troops in Borno State or risk facing the country’s armed forces. The ISWAP group was formerly part of Boko Haram before it split some seven years ago, pledging allegiance to Daesh*. The split was mainly caused by religious and ideological disagreements over Boko Haram’s actions, in particular, in targeting civilians, which ISWAP opposed. Since then, the groups have engaged in a violent rivalry. Boko Haram and ISWAP have been at odds for years. In particular, in 2021, the West African branch of the Islamic State launched an offensive in the Sambisa forest, the hideout of Boko Haram. The offensive resulted in the death of Boko Haram’s spiritual leader, Abubakar Shekau. Nigerian officials later said that Shekau committed suicide by detonating a suicide vest. Terrorism and insurgent violence led by terrorist organizations, including Boko Haram, is a major driver of insecurity in northeastern Nigeria and the Lake Chad Basin. According to UN estimates, several thousand people have been killed and more than two million displaced by the Boko Haram insurgency since 2011. While the Nigerian government has recently made progress in recovering and stabilizing large parts of the region, the affected residents are gradually returning to their lives. , even if the fight against terrorists continues. In December, officials said, more than 5,700 people from northeast Nigeria who had taken refuge in Cameroon and Niger six years ago following attacks by the terror group returned home. * terrorist organizations banned in Russia and many other states
