Meanwhile, the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād has claimed responsibility for the killing of two businessmen in Kano State. ISWAP in a statement said the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the caliphate.
The deceased is Ifeanyi Elechukwu, aged 41, who was the target of the attack and his friend, Chibuille Emmanuel, 33, who was shot in the leg, but eventually died at a private clinic in the state capital.
Elechukwu, a battery dealer, was said to have been lured to his shop by one of the gunmen, who pretended to be a customer. He was shot at close range and killed while his friend was chased and also shot.
Elechukwu’s trouble started after he sold battery items to Boko Haram, which they used for a bomb blast operation in Kano without his knowledge. The car batteries were used by terrorists to make bombs used at the last bomb blast in Kano which the Kano state government claimed was a gas explosion.
After the explosion, Ifeanyi was picked up by the DSS, upon interrogation on Abuja Musician murdered, he told the DSS what he knew about the bomb blast and the items that Boko Haram members bought from him.
The revelation from him to the DSS and Nigerian army was damaging as it led to the arrest of the Boko Haram members that did that bomb blast.
In retaliation, Boko haram members came for him on Saturday to kill him for divulging the information to the DSS and the Nigerian army, which led to the arrest of their members.
