A video, said to have been published by the Islamic State A’maq agency, shows what appears to be a view of the Kuje prison while gunshots are heard in the background.

According to Tomasz Rolbecki, a researcher who analyses activities of insurgents in sub-Saharan Africa, ISWAP said the attack resulted in its fighters “freeing dozens of prisoners”.
