The Islamist Jihadist terrorist leader of the factional Boko-Haram sects of the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) Al-Barnawi was killed in Borno, Northeast Nigeria.
The terrorist leader Al-Barnawi’s death story has different narratives from different sources since the ISWAP terrorist group did not announce his death.
Before Al-Barnawi’s death, he was the biological son of the late Muhammed Yusuf, the founder of the Boko-Haram terrorist group that was killed by Nigerian troops after he attempted to escape.
However, He Al-Barnawi planned the assassinations of his father’s successor, Abubakar Shekau over alleged misconduct, disloyal and corrupt practices.
Since Shekau’s death, the terrorist groups have pledged alliance with other factional sects, but unfortunately, they haven’t been able to achieve unity by fighting and killing each other several times.
Therefore, the unresolved dispute between the groups has claimed the lives of notorious commandants from both Boko-Haram and ISWAP terrorist groups. However, it is a tactical success for the Nigerian troops.
For his death, according to unconfirmed reports, the Nigerian troops believe he was killed in a gun duel after the troops laid an ambush against the group, while other sources reveal that Al-Barnawi was killed by a rival group at an undisclosed place.
The Nigerian army spokesman is yet to clarify or comments on the notorious Boko-Haram leader.
