ISWAP has been consolidating its control in areas around Lake Chad since the death of Boko Haram commander Abubakar Shekau.

Wali Sani Shuwaram, a 45-year-old man, was recently appointed as the new Leader of ISWAP in Lake Chad.

Hundreds of Boko Haram fighters have defected from the late Shekau’s camp, increasing the ISWAP’s membership.

This is not the first time Nigerian security forces are experiencing a Boko Haram Ambush. Late last year an army general and three soldiers were killed in a Boko Haram ambush attack on a remote town known as Askira in northeast Borno State.

The Nigerian Army has stated that the insurgency has been mostly defeated on numerous occasions, while downplaying any losses.

The terror group has killed over 100,000 people and displaced millions of people, mostly in the states of Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe.
