The Islamic State of West Africa (ISWAP) has kick-started a massive recruitment exercise of young men from several Internally displaced persons in Borno State.

It was further gathered that the purpose of the latest recruitment was to re-enforce the recently diminished battlefield leadership and depleted fighters, and to encourage young men to join its ranks, ISWAP most powerful leadership approved 3 key appointment with sources hinting that more appointments may likely follow.
