“Al-Barnawi is dead. Abu Musab Al Barnawi, leader of ISIS West Africa Province, the son of Usuf Mohammed the founder of Boko Haram. He was assistant to Abubakar Shekau the former leader of Boko Haram. ISWAP is an affiliate of ISIS and Al Qaeda. But recently ISIS was their major sponsor as Al Barnawi was loyal to them.” Peter Nonso Ikeh reacted on facebook.
Plausible breaking news about #ISWAP #BokoHaram … There have been mounting rumours about the death of ISWAP leader Habib Yusuf aka Abu Musab al Barnawi… I had long been skeptical. But I am now hearing that from a lot of solid quarters… I am tempted to accept the notion.
