ISWAP Releases Photos Of Tuesday’s Attack On Marte, Borno

ISWAP releases photos of their up-armoured SVBIED attack near a Nigerian military outpost at Marte, Borno on Teusday January 4, 2022.

The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jam’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihd, a Boko Haram-affiliated organization, has claimed responsibility for the deaths of 10 Nigerian troops in Borno State.

The troops were murdered after an explosives-laden truck rammed into a military position in Marte, Borno State, along the banks of Lake Chad, according to ISWAP in a post on Wednesday.

The vehicle, a standardized pick-up truck driven by one “Abu Suleiman al-Ansari,” is seen approaching the target before exploding in a tremendous blast.

Wali Sani Shuwaram, 45, was recently appointed as the new Leader (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.

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

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.
