The Institute For Security Studies (ISS) has revealed that the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) is preparing to use drones for attacks in the Lake Chad Basin.
ISS said in an attempt to strike undetected, the terrorists plan to use the unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to fly improvised explosive devices (IEDs) to targeted locations in Nigeria and neighbouring countries.
It noted that the Nigerian military had inflicted losses on Boko Haram factions, Jamaatu AhlisSunna LiddaAwati WalJihad (JAS) and ISWAP, forcing the latter to restrategise.
The research, comprising analysis of propaganda materials and interviews with former combatants and associates, show an elaborate use of communication technology.
This includes satellite phones, drones, social media, highspeed printers, laptops, cameras, WiFi, clipon microphones, walkietalkies, and data compression and archiving software.
The research found that the tools are used by ISWAPs media team led by Abba Yusuf (aka Abu Rumaisa), son of the late Boko Haram founder, Mohammed Yusuf.
