Nigeria records second highest number of ISIS attacks in 81 days


ISIS (Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) has claimed its fighters carried out 517 attacks around the world between January 1 and March 17.

The group claimed Nigeria is ranked second on the list with 112 attacks.

Other countries listed are Iraq (162), Syria (106), Egypt (30), Afghanistan (68), DRC (18), Niger (9), Pakistan (7), Tunisia (2), Chad (1), Mali (1) and Somalia (1).

This comes after the Pentagon issued a warning that ISIS is taking over swathes of Africa like it did in Syria and Iraq with “staggeringly brutal” tactics.

According to a report from West Point, the US officer training academy, the group’s expansion and regrouping on the continent shows “Islamic State is far from defeated.”

By the summer of 2020, it had become resolutely clear that the Islamic State was a changed organisation, but by no means a beaten one,” the report, published by West Point’s Combating Terrorism Centre, said.
