Islamic State has released a chilling video of its Nigerian jihadis carrying out a suicide bombing and showing off corpses amid a major power struggle in the terror group’s west African branch.
The footage, from the Wilayat Gharb Afriqiya propaganda arm, shows militants firing truck-mounted guns before a suicide bomber drives a vehicle laden with explosives into the distance and detonates it sending the blast far into the sky.
The terrorists then show off the corpses of dead soldiers and inside captured army barracks, where an enormous haul of weapons was picked up by the jihadis including machine guns and huge boxes of ammunition.
It comes as two leaders of Boko Haram – the west African affiliate of ISIS – are engaged in a bitter power struggle.
ISIS said that Boko Haram had a new leader – Abu Musab al-Barnawi – and one of its magazines ran an interview with him.
The group rose to prominence after abducting 300 schoolgirls two years ago, leading to the Bring Back Our Girls campaign headed by Michelle Obama.
But Boko Haram’s current chief Abubakar Shekau has denied the claim and insisted that he is still in control of the jihadis, who have killed more than 20,000 people.
Last year the Nigerian Islamist terror group pledged allegiance to ISIS in a chilling message to the world.
The savage killers, who have been known to use child suicide bombers, announced the unholy alliance on their Twitter account.
In a video message posted to the account, Shekau told the world how his murderous ‘troops’ would now work with ISIS in the country.
