The Federal Government has announced the killing of a leader of the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP), Malam Bako.
It can be recalled that Bako succeeded Abu Musab Al-Barnawi, the late leader and son of Boko Haram founder, Mohammed Yusuf.
Addressing journalists at the State House on Thursday, the National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno said Bako was killed by Nigerian troops alongside an ISWAP commander.
“In one month, we have been able to take out the leadership of ISWAP, that is Abu Musab Al-Barnawi. Two days ago, the man who succeeded him, Malam Bako, one of ISWAP Shura Council, was also taken out.”
