Nigeria: Boko Haram militants joined ISWAP
ISWNews Analysis Group: As the Nigerian terrorist movements continues to change, a large number of militants from the Boko Haram terrorist group have joined ISWAP.
Following the death of former Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau and changes in the group’s structure, a large number of Boko Haram militants joined ISWAP. In a video recently released by ISWAP, Boko Haram militants pledge allegiance to an ISWAP commander Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Quraishi and ask other Boko Haram militants to respond to the caliph’s invitation.
The developments come as former Boko Haram leader Abubakar Shekau was killed on June this year, and a man named Bakur Sakhalaba is claiming to succeed him.
