Nigeria’s Chief of Defence Staff, CDS, General Lucky Irabor has confirmed that the vicious leader of the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), Abu Musab Al-Barnawi has been killed.
General Irabor made the revelation while speaking on Thursday during the Ministerial briefing organised by the presidential communications team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
“I can authoritatively confirm to you that Abu Musab is dead. As simple as that. He is dead and remains dead,” Irabor said
The founder of Boko Haram, Mohammed Yusuf was also killed by security forces in 2009 when he championed an onslaught against the Nigerian State that resulted in the death of over a thousand persons.
Al-Barnawi was announced as the leader of its West African affiliate, Boko Haram, which was hitherto led by Abubakar Shekau in 2016.
Shekau’s removal in 2016 heralded the rise of the relatively young Al-Barnawi as ISWAP leader and at the same time, the split of the terrorist group into two factions.
