How ISWAP Killed General Dzarma Zirkusu, Using Attack On Askira As A Decoy


Fighter planes of the Nigerian Air Force killed scores of Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) members when they were meeting with their new leader, Sani Shuwaram, in Sabon Tumbun and Jibularam in Marte Local Government Area in Borno State.

According to intelligence sources familiar with the military's counter-insurgency operations, a coordinated aerial and ground operation was carried out yesterday by Nigerian Army and Air Force jets, targeting the newly-appointed Wali of ISWAP, Sani Shuwaram, at a meeting with other Senior Commanders.

"The strikes were executed after an intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance study, by the Air Task Force.


“Several jihadists were killed, including high-ranking insurgents’ commanders, foot soldiers and Hisbah police of the ISWAP faction


“A ground assessment confirmed that some of the ISWAP top Commanders that were at the scene at the time of the strikes include; Muhammed Bako, Special Militant Forces Commander (Rijal Ann); Muhammad Malumma, a Chief Judge of Marte; Goni Mustapha, the Chief Imam; Muhammed Ba’ana, Commander of Kirta; Muhammed Ali, Amir of Kwalaram; Ibn Umar, Chief Prosecutor; Bakura Gana, Commander of Jubularam; and Malam Musa, Amir of Jubularam.”

ISWAP, on the other hand, grew enraged and went on the rampage, incensed at the disruption and assassination of their leaders.


ISWAP terrorists attacked military formation at TomsuKawu village yesterday, killing three Special Forces and seizing an armoured vehicle, according to PRNigeria.


Terrorists launched another strike near Maiduguri's capital on Friday night. Details are hazy.


The ISWAP begins to disrupt communications networks in many communities, primarily targeting Communication Gadget to disrupt communication and information. The table was set in preparation for a major attack.

An intelligence officer told PRNigeria that the terrorists were ‘misbehaving after their heavy losses.’


The source said: "The ISWAP terrorists, who invaded the Askira Uba town destroyed telecommunication masts with guns and other firearms in their possession, forcing residents to flee.


“A military commander was killed in an ambush while leading troops on reinforcement operation. Some soldiers were also killed.


“Another group of terrorists attacked Mulai village, close to Maiduguri and rustled some cattle while another gang of fighters attacked a communication mast and health centre in Buni Yadi, Yobe State and carted away generator set and drugs.

As soon as gallant military rushed to the people' rescue, ISWAP attacked Askira as a trojan horse to target a key commander.


The soldiers, not the village, were the target, as they set up an ambush for the soldiers arriving for reinforcements; many of them were reportedly killed by the Nigerian army and the airforce's fighter jet.
