The Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jamā'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihād, has released photographs of militants belonging to the sect observing Eid-el-Fitr prayers at different locations in Nigeria.
While the date of the event is unknown, Eid-el-Fitr was celebrated by most Muslim faithful across the globe on May 13.
According to the pictures sighted by SaharaReporters, the insurgents were seen in about four groups praying together in open fields.
Boko Haram terrorists have killed thousands and displaced millions in North-Eastern Nigeria.
The Nigerian military has repeatedly claimed that the insurgency had been largely defeated and frequently underplays any losses.
In the past months, the insurgents have targeted soldiers who lay ambush on their path.

You should say: I wonder what kind of people does that. Why do you always find a way to tag things to a religion. Bad people are everywhere in all religion, they kidnap rapw and kill. No religion support that as such dont bring religion
This embarrassing and alarming, a general is president and terrorists have taken over!
But I have an issue, I read this and I didn't see any location/state and every news item should have the Ws and H.
Where did this happen?
Who is taking this pictures and send them to media houses; and our so-called intelligence squads are unable to locate them
So ppl r (...help complete) like say twitter followers r criteria to heaven. Tweeting nonsense on both serious and unserious ish. Go work on urself. If u hv value and relevant, u wont beg ppl to follow u like say na ur pass thru heaven's gate.
Now they don’t even cover their faces. It wasn’t like this 7 years ago. By 10yrs time, if the Southern leaders don’t help us break away from these people, Nigeria will become another Syria Flag of Syria This is not a prophecy. It is how it works.
Did I hear you say 10years, they're here already, our leaders are collecting a paltry sum of money and selling their pple, we will hold them accountable
Beggars belief that the Nigerian military cannot deploy or sustain ISR capabilities over a limited area to pinpoint these locations. BH is posing with weapons and vehicles graciously provided by the Nigerian army
In 2018 General TY Danjuma said that Nigerian Armed Forces are NOT neutral & they aid, shield the Terrorists.
The fact that Terrorists/ Boko Haram in Nigeria enjoy this level of comfort shows that attack on Boko Haram is attack on North as Buhari said.
Why we #SayNoToNigeria
