Nigerian military reports ISWAP leader's death without proof

Nigeria’s military made it known to the public reporting a successful attack that led to the killing of Abu Musab al-Barnawi, the leader of Islamic State West Africa Province known as ISWAP.

Since the “fall” of the terrorist Boko Haram, ISWAP took over as the strongest jihadist group in Nigeria.

According to General Lucky Irabor, the Chief of Defence Staff :

“He is dead and remains dead.”

That was the statement and it remains the statement with no further details about the operation.

However, ISWAP is yet to make any public release about the death of Abu Musab al-Barnawi.
