ALERT: ‘Most lethal threat to Nigeria’s existence’ uncovered, as bandits now work with ISWAP

Usman Yusuf, the former Executive Secretary of the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS), has claimed that the nature of recent attacks on public facilities in Kaduna State showed that the hitherto bandits have joined forces with the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP), a Boko Haram splinter.

POLITICS NIGERIA reports that Yusuf, who was speaking in a recent interview on Channels TV, expressed fears that the collaboration between ISWAP insurgents and bandits would be the most lethal threat to the existence of Nigeria.

“What we’ve been scared would happen has happened; the unholy alliance between bandits and ISWAP has happened. The moment we saw that (Kaduna) train attack, we knew this was not the job of the ragtag bandits we met; this is the modus operandi of ISWAP.

“Maiduguri, the capital city of Borno State has not had electricity now for months because Boko Haram, (and) ISWAP blew the transmission live twice. They are after infrastructure; these guys are after that, they went to the airport and now they are blowing up trains and highways. They are literally blockading the city of Kaduna; you cannot go by road, rail or by air. They are literally picking infrastructure,” Yusuf said.
