16 people killed in attacks by Boko Haram, rival faction in Nigeria’s Borno
[PRESSTV] At least 16 people, including 11 government troopers, have been killed during attacks launched by Takfiri
...an adherent of takfir wal hijra, an offshoot of Salafism that regards everybody who doesn't agree with them as apostates who must be killed...
hard boyz in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno.

The deadly attacks were conducted by Boko Haram
... not to be confused with Procol Harum, Harum Scarum, possibly to be confused with Helter Skelter. The Nigerian version of al-Qaeda and the Taliban rolled together and flavored with a smigeon of distinctly Subsaharan ignorance and brutality...
and its splinter faction on military and civilian targets between Thursday and Saturday, said military and militia sources on Saturday.

The faction, which calls itself the West Africa Province (ISWAP) branch of the ISIS
...embracing their inner Islamic Brute...
Takfiri terrorist group, made an alliance with Boko Haram in 2015 before separating in 2016.

ISWAP has launched repeated attacks in the African country in recent months after ISIS lost all its urban strongholds in Iraq and Syria following crushing defeats it received from government troops and their allied fighters in both Arab countries.

An unnamed military source told AFP that ISWAP hard boyz ambushed a military convoy near Mauro village in Benisheikh district in the volatile state on Thursday.

"Our men on patrol fell into a terrorist ambush... which claimed 11 soldiers and maimed 16 others. Two other soldiers are still missing," said the military officer, adding that the troops were traveling in three vehicles.

He further said hard boyz made away with 11 AK-47 rifles and anti-aircraft gun mounted on their gun truck.
