Deadly ambush on election convoy in Nigeria

Thursday 00:35 GMT

In late December, the IS-affiliated faction known by its acronym ISWAP briefly took over the town of Baga, near Lake Chad; routed a multinational unit of 500 soldiers from Nigeria, Niger, Chad and Cameroon; and seized weapons and vehicles.

At least four people were reported to have died in the ambush on Wednesday, but state governor Stettima — who is campaigning for a seat in Nigeria's Senate — escaped Tuesday's ambush unhurt.
