Islamic State (ISIS) identified the new leader of Boko Haram, its West African affiliate in Nigeria, in an interview published today in its newspaper.
The newspaper al-Nabaa called Abu Musab al-Barnawi the new “wali,” a title used in describing Boko Haram’s former leader Abubakar Shekau. The interview said nothing of Shekau, who was last heard from in an ISIS video released in April.
