Matters Arising learnt that, Nigerian military has killed many fighters of ISWAP, including a top Commander Malam Buba Danfulani with airstrikes from A-29 Super Tucano along the fringes of Lake Chad in Borno State.
A Security Analyst, Zagazola Makama gathered that he died with some of his foot soldiers in an airstrike executed at the East of Madayi in Kukawa Local Government Area on February 13, 2022.
Malam Buba Danfulani was an ISWAP Amir, in-charge of all the Fulani and herdsmen who joined the terrorists.
He also coordinate activities of the terrorists ranging from deployment of spies, collection of taxes and lavies (taxes), issued passes and also acted as an intermediary between the ISWAP leadership and newly inducted members from his extraction.
