ISWAP Fighters Now In Suleja, Claim Responsibility For Killing Of 3 Policemen

The Islamic State-backed faction of the Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād has claimed responsibility for the killing of three policemen and a commercial motorcyclist in Suleja, Niger State.

Suleja is less than 20 Kilometres away from the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

Gunmen had on Thursday ambushed the policemen while responding to a distress call near a place called Old Barracks in the town.

The slain officers were identified as Hosea Saba, Yahaya Yakubu and Aminu Sani, all attached to the B Division command in Suleja.

About three persons, including a vigilante member, were also injured during the attack.
However, ISWAP said the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the caliphate”.
