Jihadi group Boko Haram has changed its name to ISWAP or Islamic State’s West Africa Province. Boko Haram is terrorist organization based in northeastern Nigeria, also active in Chad, Niger and northern Cameroon. The group is led by Abubakar Shekau. Estimates of the group’s membership vary between 7,000 and 10,000 fighters.
The group initially had links to al-Qaeda, but in 2014 it expressed support for the Islamic State before pledging formal allegiance to it in March 2015. This move appears to give the Islamic State a foothold outside of the Middle East and North Africa for the first time, as terrorist organization tries to create a global caliphate.
Hundreds of decomposing bodies have been found dead in the north-east Nigerian town of Damask, apparently victims of the ISWAP insurgency, as details emerged on Monday of fresh attacks by the militants. Totally, ISWAP is responsible for over 5,500 civilian death since 2014.
