Shuwaram will control the group in Sambisa, Timbuktu, Tumbumma and others under the supervision of ISIS Leader, the Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi.

A military source told PRNigeria that visiting ISIS envoys also discussed internal rivalries, discriminatory action, and financial challenges in ISWAP.

Others were clashes between JAS factions led by Bakoura and Bukuma as well as the refusal of some Boko Haram fighters to join those that have pledged allegiance to ISWAP since Abubakar Shekau’s death.

“Apart from looking at issues of management of resources and welfare of widows and foot-soldiers, ISIS is planning to provide logistic support to ISWAP for missions in Baga, Marte and Malam Fatori”, the officer said.

Meanwhile, intelligence has uncovered the plan by ISWAP to move military uniforms purchased from Libya into Nigeria.
