The Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) is maintaining its offensive against Boko Haram, which is led by Abubakar Shekau.
Last week in Sambisa woodland, Shekau, the leader of the Jama’tu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad (JAS) faction, was killed.
As ISWAP attempted to kidnap him, he blew himself up, according to Nigerian intelligence.
Boko Haram commanders and fighters have been slain and arrested by an ISIS affiliate.
Mustapha Krimima Jaysh, Ba’akaka, Malkin Tijjani, Hirasama, and Mallam Ballu were among Shekau’s leaders who refused to surrender to the cult.
After the fight of supremacy between ISWAP and Boko Haram in Garin Malam, terrorist gun trucks were spotted near Marte, East of Tumour, Tumbumma, and Tumbuktu Triangle in Sambisa, according to PRNigeria.
ISWAP commanders and other surrendered senior Boko Haram militants are convening in the Sabeel Huda camp in the middle of the Sambisa forest.
Albarnawy’s disciplinary committee, headed by Muhammad Malumma, ISWAP’s Chief Judge, would decide the fate of the arrested opposing fighters.
If the Shekau faction does not submit, the leadership has threatened to kill all of its members.
An intercepted communication between ISWAP leaders revealed that a committee commanded by Abu-Mosad Albarnawy, a self-proclaimed appointee of Amirul Mu’uminoon (ISIS Caliphate Leader), had abolished all of Shekau’s structures, according to an intelligence agent.
The ISWAP Wali, Muhammad Dawud, nicknamed Abu Hafsat, and four other ISWAP Fiye (Service Chiefs) and Khalids (Commanding Officers) from Lake Chad, Tumbuktu, and Marte are coordinating the current fight.
Abu-Mosad Albarnawy is in charge of all of the ISWAP Service Chiefs and Commanding Officers.
