The leader of the Islamic State of West Africa Province, ISWAP and top commanders of Boko Haram have agreed to work together in a jihad following a recent peace pact between the two groups.

This is coming one month after the former leader of Boko Haram, Abubakar Shekau, blew himself up during a confrontation with ISWAP.

The terrorists in a 13-minute video obtained by PR Nigeria pledged allegiance to each other, while they placed their hands on one another while making friendly comments.

They also pledged allegiance to Aba Ibrahim Al-Hashimiyil Khuraishi, who was unanimously declared as ‘Khalifan Muslimai’ (The Leader of all Muslims).

Four commanders from Boko Haram and ISWAP announced their loyalty. They spoke in Arabic, Hausa, English and Fulfulde.

One of the leaders while speaking confirmed Nigeria intelligence services played a major role in creating divisions in their camps.

Another thanked Khuraishi for the pact and said members of the sects should be happy about the reunion.

An ISWAP fighter, with a rifle on his neck, declared: “What is left now is Jihad. We will not stop fighting the unbelievers. All the disbelievers have entered trouble.”
