The federal government has announced the killing of Malam Bako, a leader of Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP).

Bako succeeded Abu Musab Al-Barnawi, the late leader and son of Boko Haram founder, Mohammed Yusuf.

National Security Adviser, Babagana Monguno addressed State House correspondents on Thursday.

The retired General spoke after President Muhammadu Buhari met security chiefs at the State House.

Monguno disclosed that Bako was neutralized along with an ISWAP commander. He hailed the armed forces for recent successful operations.

“In one month, we have been able to take out the leadership of ISWAP, that is Abu Musab Al-Barnawi.

“Two days ago, the man who succeeded him, Malam Bako, one of ISWAP Shura Council, was also taken out.”

Monguno said the terror group is contending with leadership crisis accompanied with inherent issues of trust, conflicts and suspicion.

The NSA added that ongoing military operations had put pressure on Boko Haram, ISWAP, and the Islamic State in the Greatest Sahara.

On October 14, the Chief of Defence Staff (CDS), Lucky Irabor confirmed Al-Barnawi’s death.
