Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) fighters erroneously eliminated one of their top commanders known as Ba’ana Okocha.
The indigene of Gamboru area of Borno and four others were shot dead at a heavily protected ISWAP location called Arinna Sorro.
The enclave serves as an armoury and hideout for top militant commanders, including foreign ISIS mercenaries who regularly visit from neighbouring countries.
According to EON Intelligence, Okocha and his guards were wrongly identified by the ISWAP snipers. The squad maintained position throughout the day, it was gathered.
The shooters perceived Okocha and his team as aggressors from the Abubakar Shekau led Boko Haram faction.
