ISWAP Terrorists Kills Member For Over Money
The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) has killed one of its members for diversion of funds.
A counter-insurgency expert, Zagazola Makama, disclosed this in a tweet on Tuesday.
According to Makama, the murdered ISWAP member was sent to buy food stuff but diverted the money for personal use.
The counter-insurgency expert said the deceased was tied for about two hours before he was slaughtered in Ajikur in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.
Borno is in Northeastern Nigeria and is the epicentre of insurgency in the country.
“ISWAP terrorists have slaughtered their own member for diverting funds. The ISWAP member was sent to buy food stuff but diverted the money for personal use,” he posted.
“The member was tied for about two hours before he was later slaughtered in Ajikur in Damboa LGA.”
This is coming a few weeks after several members of the group and fighters of the Boko Haram lost their lives during a clash between the two camps in Borno state.
The rival groups have been attacking communities in the Northeast region since both camps fell apart over leadership issues.
The groups have also since been having clashes, and Abubakar Shekau, leader of Boko Haram, was reportedly killed during one of such clashes in 2021.
