At least five Boko Haram members have been reportedly killed in faraway Iraq by Mosul Youth Resistance Movement on Wednesday, May 13.
This is the first report of the presence of Boko Haram militants in Iraq following the sect’s allegiance to deadly ISIS and ISIS’s acceptance of Boko Haram’s allegiance.
According to reports by Basnews.com, the Boko Haram insurgents were attacked in the Dargaza neighbourhood of eastern Mosul.
Saed Mamuzini, Mosul’s spokesperson was quoted by BasNews as saying, “The Nigerian Boko Haram militants were in Mosul to take part in a military training course conducted by Islamic State (IS).”
Boko Haram has abducted and killed thousands of people within the North-East region of Nigeria.
