(Claim) Jama’atu Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan (JAMBS – Ansaru): Ambush on Nigerian Army Convoy Killing At Least 22 Soldiers on Kaduna-Zaria ‎Highway in Kaduna, Nigeria – 17 January 2020

TRAC continues to monitor worsening ground conditions in several African nations. Analyst Hylda Fenton posted this week that on the significance of the claim at right. Kaduna, Nigeria is extremely far from Boko Haram (Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati wal-Jihad) and Islamic State West Africa (ISWA / ISWAP) activities around the Maiduguri areas. Boko Haram released a video “Message to the Emir of Kano” in December 2014. Jama’atu Ansarul Muslimina Fi Biladis Sudan (Ansaru) hasn’t had any activity as a group since 2013. The fact the claim was issued by an AQC media outlet claimed is a sign that AQC is trying to appear vast and capitalize on ANSARU’s reemergence.
