ISIS Branch Releases Video Of 12-Year-Old Executing Nigerian Soldiers

A branch of the Islamic State has reportedly released footage of a 12-year-old executing two Nigerian soldiers.

The terrorist group released footage of a 12-year-old member of the Islamic State in West Africa Province killing two Nigerian soldiers in a video titled "Makers of Epic Battles."

Tomasz Rolbiecki , a researcher of ISIS and its worldwide tactics, noted that the 17-minute-long video depicts the attacks from ISWAP's spring campaign, which erupted in northern Borno and Yobe, two states in Nigeria.

"There are no words to describe how awful it is," tweeted Rolbiecki.
