Credible information says, a faction(s) has emerged within ISWAP. What is not, however, clear at this time is, which of the factions will receive the backing of IS central and also claim the bulk of the fighting force within the group.
Interestingly, Abu Musab was the person that announced his own sack in an audio recording. Did he make the announcement under duress? Why haven’t IS central said anything yet about the leadership crisis in one of its most active Wilayat?
It is not yet clear, if he will make a case with IS central or be on his own. Sources doubt a move to Shekau and said, “the allegations against Abu Musab were fabricated.”
