ISWAP continued by saying that its soldiers will keep targeting jails throughout the globe.
The Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, has vowed to attack more prisons in Nigeria and other parts of the world.
Recall that gunmen attacked the Kuje Prison in Abuja on Tuesday. Over 800 convicts, including terrorists, fled during the raid by gunmen, according to reports, who claim that the terrorists stormed the institution at 9:05 pm and remained there until 1:30 am on Wednesday.
But the organization had already taken credit for the assault on that building. In a video made public on Wednesday, ISWAP claimed accountability for the assault. The terrorist group showed several of its members shooting their way inside the building in the video.
The terrorist organization also stated that the three groups of its members stormed Kuje jail. The first squad remained at the prison entrance, the second group raided the jail complex, and the final group was entrusted with obstructing the surrounding roadways. ISWAP continued by saying that its soldiers will keep targeting jails throughout the globe.
