How El-Rufai's Recent Claims About ISWAP Contradicted Earlier Reports Of Boko Haram's Allegiance To Them

Following the advancement of terrorism in the country despite the relentless efforts of the Nigerian military towards ensuring that insurgency is subdued and annihilated, the able governor of Kaduna State, Nasir El-Rufai has come out to disclose how the ISWAP (Islamic State West African Province) terrorist sect are now chasing out Boko Haram (BH) insurgents from the North-East part of the region to the North-West.

The governor who disclosed this in a recent report from Sahara Reporters described the development as his greatest fear while calling for the collaborative efforts of the Nigerian government and the entire citizens of the country in combating this very sinister.

In the light of the recent development, we may deem it necessary to recall how series of reports from reliable sources had revealed how the Boko Haram insurgents reportedly pledged allegiance to the ISWAP terrorist sect after the former leader of the group, Abubakar Shekau killed himself amid a violent confrontation from ISWAP some months ago.

The development which trended as at then came with an unpopular video clip which disclosed the moment that some Boko Haram members were pledging allegiance to one Aba Ibrahim Alkhuraishi whom they ordained as the 'Leader of All Muslims'.

Consequently, following the recent statement of Governor El-Rufai that the ISWAP terrorist sect is now chasing Boko Haram out of the North-East part of the region to the North-West, you may want to agree with me that the governor's recent claims have successfully contradicted the earlier report affirming that Boko Haram has pledged allegiance to ISWAP following the death of their leader.
