The terror group further stressed that it set on fire many army operational patrol vehicles.

For this reason, the dying of JAS chief, Abubakar Shekau, ISWAP has been consolidating its grip in places around Lake Chad.

Only recently, it appointed Wali Sani Shuwaram, a 45-year-old as the new Chief (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.

The sect’s membership has expanded with the defection of a whole lot of Boko Haram fighters under Shekau.

The Nigerian Military has repeatedly claimed that insurgency had been largely defeated and often underplays any losses.

The terror group has triggered over a hundred thousand (100,000) deaths and displaced thousands and thousands of people primarily in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.
