ISWAP And Boko Haram 'Introduce New Tax' On Farmers And Fishermen

According to PRNigeria, Boko Haram and ISWAP fighters have named new commanders and imposed new taxes on farmers, traders, and fishermen. After the Nigerian military operatives assassinated the leaders of the two groups, the militants recruited new members. "After the death of Abubakar Shekau and the militants' merger, the Al-Barnawi committee returned to Ba-Lawan to lead what they called the Islamic State of Africa," the newspaper reported.

The insurgents will then receive N5,000 per month from traders and farmers, and fishermen will pay the sum of N2,000 in tax on each bag of fish. Boko Haram and ISWAP militants have been at odds in recent days, with the Nigerian military continuing to crack down on their hideouts.

According to reports, at least 30 militants were killed in Yobe State on Saturday following an ambush of a police convoy on the Damaturu-Maiduguri road by terrorists, but the attack was repelled due to massive support by the Nigerian Army.
