ISIS cells stepped up their attacks on Nigerian government forces and civilians in the last few weeks. The terrorists carried out attacks in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa.
The terrorist group established a strong presence in Nigeria over the last year. Despite government efforts, the threat posed by the group continues to grow.
