On May 5, ISIS news agency Amaq released photos of a recent attack by the group on the town of Kanama in the northeastern Nigerian state of Yobe.


During the attack, which took place on April 29, ISIS terrorists stormed Kanama. The terrorists managed to enter the town, that’s located a few kilometers away from the border with Niger, after overrunning a post of the Nigerian Armed Forces (NAF).

According to Amaq, ISIS fighters killed four Nigerian soldiers and captured three others. Many other service members were wounded in the battle.


The terrorists also burned or destroyed a Turkish-made Otokar Cobra armored vehicle, a French-made Panhard ERC armored car and an Austrian-made Saurer 4K 4FA armored personnel carrier. Five pickup trucks were captured by the terrorists, along with loads of weapons.

ISIS cells have been working to expand its influence from Borno state, which neighbors Lake Chad, to Yobe since the beginning of the year.


In January, ISIS terrorists attacked a gathering of the NAF near the town of Gujba in Yobe. At least five soldiers were killed in the attack.
