Boko Haram Islamic extremists said on Tuesday that they have killed more than 40 troops from a multinational force in an attack on a military convoy in northeast Nigeria. The attack is the fourth in three days.
The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) West Africa Province annihilated “a convoy of the African Coalition Crusader forces” in the town of Malam Fatori.
There is no way to independently verify the claim and there has been no word from Nigeria’s military late Tuesday night.
Tuesday’s was the first Nigeria attack claimed by ISIS since August 2016.
