Abu Musad Al-Barnawi, ISWAP leader is dead, says Chief of defence staff



The chief of defence staff, Lucky Irabor, Thursday confirmed the death of the leader of the Islamic State in West Africa Province, ISWAP, Abu Musad Al-Barnawi.

Irabor disclosed this while fielding questions from state house correspondents. According to him: “I can authoritatively confirm to you that Al-Barnawi is dead. He is dead, and he remains dead.”

However, Irabor also said that the perception of discriminatory military engagement against the people of the southeast was not correct.

The CDS assertion was against the background of accusations against the military over its alleged harsh treatment of the people of the southeast.

Gen. Irabor also debunks the report credited to the Pan Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere that terrorists have infiltrated the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Abuja, and the neighboring cities.

The Chief of Defense Staff stated these at the ministerial briefing organized by the Presidential Communications team at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
