Aftermath Of Isis Alliance: Boko Haram Changes Name To Islamic State’s West African Province


Nigerian terror group Boko Haram has reportedly changed its name to Islamic State’s West African Province (Iswap), weeks after the insurgents pledged allegiance to the Islamic State Isis terror group.

Boko Haram – a nickname given by Nigerians which translates from the Hausa language as “western education is forbidden” –  has caused thousands of deaths since its insurgence in north-eastern Nigeria started in 2009.


The group’s official name was Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad, which means “People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet’s Teachings and Jihad”.
