ISWAP Top Commander Dies After Snake Bite In Borno

A top commander of the Islamic State of West African Province (ISWAP), Kiriku, has lost his life in Borno State after sustaining a snake bite injury.

A counter-insurgency expert focused on the Lake Chad region, Zagazola Makama, stated this in a tweet via his Twitter handle on Saturday, Wonder9ja reports.

Makama said Kiriku sustained the injury in one of ISWAP’s hideouts in Damboa Local Government Area (LGA) of Borno on Tuesday and died on Friday.

According to the counter-insurgency expert, the ISWAP field commander died after he was unable to access treatment for the snake bite wound.

Before his death, Kiriku operated within the Jiddari axis of Chiralia in the Timbuktu triangle and led many attacks and ambushes against troops of Operation Hadin Kai in Borno.

The Timbuktu triangle, a Boko Haram/SWAP stronghold, stretches over four LGAs in Borno which includes Damboa, Jere, Kaga, Konduga, and Gujba LGA in Yobe state.
