Militants from the Islamic State-backed Boko Haram group, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jam’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihd, ambushed and killed two officers at a Civilian Joint Task Force facility in Mainok, Borno State.

Mainok is 60 kilometers west of Maiduguri, the capital of Borno State.

According to SaharaReporters, the terrorists disguised themselves as military guys and arrived in a military convoy, then proceeded to the base and attacked the employees.

During the incident, many more vigilantes reportedly retreated into the jungle.

ISWAP has been consolidating its control on places around Lake Chad since the death of JAS commander Abubakar Shekau.

Wali Sani Shuwaram, 45, was recently appointed as the new leader (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.

Hundreds of Boko Haram warriors who were formerly under Shekau have defected, bringing the sect’s membership to thousands.

The terror group has killed over 50,000 people and forced millions of Nigerians to flee their homes, primarily in the states of Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe.
