The attack was likely carried by the Abu-Musab al-Barnawi branch of Boko Haram, which was loyal to ISIS because the attack was reported by Amaq. Abu-Musab al-Barnawi was appointed by ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi as the new leader of the group in early August 2016. However, the original leader of Boko Haram Abubakar Shekau rejected al-Baghdadi’s order, which led to an internal conflict within the terrorist group.

Lately, Boko Haram increased its attacks against the Nigerian Army and civilians in northeastern Nigeria. On January 3, a suicide bomber of Boko Haram killed eleven civilians when he blew himself up inside a mosque in the town of Gamboru in Borno state, according to AFP.

The Nigerian Army has conducted dozens of successful operations against strongholds of Boko Harama in northeastern Nigeria over the last two years. However, eliminating the terrorist group will likely take much more time.

    • Keep it Real

      US Africa command is funding this ISIS so that the USA can have troops in that region to control resources, same game different colour of the flags! Everywere the USa has intrest in ISIS rises from the Ashes!

    • Hide Behind

      The ignorance in such a statement shows just how far the US Empire has almost total control over its populace minds.
      SORRY NOT. to be so harsh but dam it reality is reality.
      This death and destruction is not some
      F’n video game.
      There is real blood and gore on ground, and just because it is not on N. AMERICAN AND EURO STREETS, And is red on black skins not whites , shows real barbarity within those nations lives.

        They don’t care about the color of the people who die but the money all else is just incidental not important to them. These people would love to see the US populace tearing itself apart as they do the EU who tear themselves apart. They have no humanity just greed and control that makes their world go round.

    Isis doing the dirty work for the Zionists as usual.They have their greedy eyes on Nigerian resources,and have the old plan of fake terror to get themselves involved as peacemakers.Scum of the Earth.

    The intervention of US into area was all controved.
    BOKO was no more than a loose knit band of outlaws with no more than 100 members before US interventions.
    An intervention not actually called for by any of nations involved, as they all said their own militaries and police forces were already destroying it, and they could show no connections to any outside help, ISIS Al’Q etc.
    Also they could not find any corrupt government aid either.
    This clandestine warfare and disruption to civil societies has its root in both US/Canada
    and European theft of African resources, and their installations of regimes that were easy to corrupt.
    It goes way back, France could never of had a nuclear energy program without stolen uranium. But it was not until US joined in that French and Belgium influences, at one time US Spec Ops trained African Mercs fought French supported, so that today US currency ANF English language superimposed over French and Belgium francs.
    All this ME B’S has hidden from view the slaughter and colonialism of Euro US African Continent.

    I bet these dudes can’t figure out why their machine guns keep stopping all the time. It is amazing the things can run at all with the way they store the ammo and links.
