Notorious Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP Leader , Sani Shuwaram and several insurgents have been neutralized by military airstrikes.
It was gathered that the insurgents met their deaths after men of the Nigerian air force conducted airstrikes Marte Axis Of Borno State.
Shuwaram, in particular, was said to have died from gunshot wounds he had sustained when military fighter jets raided ISWAP camp at the Sabon Tumbuns general area of Lake Chad.
The news of the killing of Shuwaram was also corroborated by a highly placed intelligence source involved in the counter-insurgency operation, in the Northeast.
The source said:
“Shuwaram was among terrorists injured by NAF air interdiction missions conducted at Sabon Tumbuns near Kirta Wulgo in February 2022. Subsequent airstrikes in the following days might have led to his death alongside other ISWAP fighters where they were receiving treatment including Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurayshi.”
Meanwhile, one Mallam Bako Gorgore has been nominated as the new Wali of ISWAP to replace Shuwaram.
