ISIS video claims to show executions in Nigeria by Boko Haram

A video put out by ISIS claimed to show the murder of five soldiers in Nigeria by Boko Haram.

The video was put online and circulated after April 1. It was mentioned in local accounts who critiqued the government. It was mentioned on some websites as well.

AFP notes: ”

Boko Haram’s Islamic State-backed faction has claimed to have executed five Nigerian soldiers but security sources told AFP on Tuesday three of those killed were civilian militia members. The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) video, dated April 1 and said to have been filmed in Borno state, northeast Nigeria, was published online by the IS propaganda arm Aamaq. It showed two men in military fatigues and three in red-orange jumpsuits reminiscent of those worn by IS hostages in Syria and Iraq. All five are shot in the head at point-blank range.”
