The Islamist terrorist group Boko Haram has released its first video of a beheading since it pledged allegiance to ISIS.
The new video adopts many stylistic features of the hundreds of barbaric videos released by ISIS over the year.
The insignia ‘west Africa’ at the top-left corner suggests that ISIS has set up a new media wing in the country.
According to Daily Mail, a Somali terror group intends to join ISIS, which would extend its so-called caliphate to East-Africa.
