Female suicide bombers have launched multiple attacks in Nigeria in the last 24 hours.
The group responsible is an ISIS affiliate that is part of the Islamic State’s “caliphate.”
According to Breitbart:
“Two female suicide bombers launched a deadly attack that killed an estimated 15 people at a packed mobile phone market in Kano, Nigeria, on Wednesday. Kano is the largest city in Northern Nigeria. The explosion ripped through Farm Centre market just after 4:00pm local time and comes only a day after a terrorist attack killed 32 and wounded 80 in the Northeast city of Yola.
As the AFP reports:
Although the ISIS attack in Paris last week properly grabbed the world’s attention, the two days of attacks in Nigeria highlight the worldwide threat of ISIS and its affiliates. The deadly violence comes as the Islamic uprising led by Boko Haram in the region has taken over 20,000 lives since 2009 and displaced over 2,000,000 in just the past two years.
Boko Haram considers itself the West African province of the Islamic State. In March of this year, it declared its allegiance to ISIS, prompting ISIS spokesman Abu Mohammad al-Adnani to release an audio saying he welcomed the group and that ISIS considers West Africa to be part of the Caliphate.”
