The Islamic State in West Africa Province (ISWAP) has formally announced its base in Niger State as it claimed its first attack in Lapai, Lapai Local Government Area (LGA) of the State.

ISWAP claimed responsibility for the attack that happened on Friday in Lapai in which terrorists killed three policemen and one motorcycle operator.
