Local sources, including a hospital warden, confirmed the attack: They said the attackers stormed the town in the afternoon and opened fire on residents and the military.
The militant group, which calls itself the West Africa province (ISWAP) branch of #Daesh, has carried out a string of attacks in Nigeria in recent months: In 2016, ISWAP separated from Boko Haram which has waged a reign of terror in northeast Nigeria for a decade, but there are reports the two groups might be merging back together: Nigeria’s army chief warned last month of an ISWAP-Boko Haram alliance to carve out a Takfiri enclave stretching from Nigeria’s northeast into the wider Lake Chad region.
Since 2009, attacks by Boko Haram terrorists have left at least 27,000 dead and made over 2.6 million others homeless: The Takfiri group pledged allegiance to Daesh in 2015: Boko Haram has used terror as a weapon of war, killing and abducting thousands of women and young girls as well as men and young boys………..The violence has spread to neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon, prompting a regional military coalition against the terrorists.
