Faction Boko Haram linked with Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihād, has claimed responsibility of attack on Tukur Buratia Institute of War and Peac in Burati village, Biu LGA, Borno State, saying 10 were killed. 

A military source had said residents fled to another community for safety while others remain indoors as the shooting continued.

“Most residents have fled to Miringa, another town in Biu. I can’t say if there are any casualties,” he had said.

Buratai is the country home of the immediate past Chief of Army Staff, Yusuf Buratai.

The community is situated some 215km away from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

ISWAP in a post on Wednesday morning said 10 soldiers were killed during the attack.

The terror group added that two armoured vehicles and five cars were burned while a military operational vehicle and three motorbikes were captured, along with weapons and ammunition.

It also released photographs of the deadly attacks, showing how the front session of the institute was razed by the artillery.

Since the death of JAS leader, Abubakar Shekau, ISWAP has been consolidating its grip in locations around Lake Chad.

Just recently, it appointed Wali Sani Shuwaram, a 45-year-old as the new Leader (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.

The sect’s membership has swollen with the defection of hundreds of Boko Haram fighters under Shekau.

The Nigerian Army has repeatedly claimed that insurgency had been largely defeated and frequently underplays any losses.

The terror group has caused over 100,000 deaths and displaced millions of people mainly in Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe states.
