Maj. Gen. Babagana Mongonu, said "The fact again is that the armed forces, the land forces have done an excellent job because in the span of one month we have been able to take out the leadership of the Islamic State of West African Province - that is Abu Musab Al-barnawi. Two days ago, the man who succeeded him, one Bako, one of the prominent leaders of the Shura Council of the Islamic State of West African Province, was also taken out."

"They are also contending with leadership crisis. You know these things are also accompanied by inherent issues of trust, conflict, mutual suspicion and other things. So, the operations being conducted by the armed forces in the Northern parts of the country put a lot of pressure on the Islamic State of West African Province, Boko Haram and also the tangential group known as Islamic State in the Great Shahara."
