In a significant development in Nigeria’s ongoing battle against terrorism, the Islamic State West African Province (ISWAP) has reported the successful neutralization of a top Boko Haram commander, Ali Gana Alhaji Ali. Ali Gana Alhaji Ali, who had controlled the Sambisa and Gwoza enclaves, was reportedly killed in a fierce gun battle on Gwoza Hill in the Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State.
Ali Gana Alhaji Ali was notorious as one of the deadliest terrorist leaders operating in the Northern region of Nigeria. He was known for his ruthless tactics and was responsible for numerous atrocities in the Sambisa forest and Bayan Dutsen Gwoza areas. His death occurred during an ambush by ISWAP fighters on a Sunday, marking a significant blow to the Boko Haram faction he led.
A security source stated, “He was the deputy of the late Ali Ngulde, and apart from Shekau, nobody killed human beings like him from Sambisa forest and Bayan Dutsen Gwoza. He was a crude killer.

His foot terrorists in Gwoza areas constantly instil fear on communities, farmers, and commuters along Pulka, Bankin, Bama, and Gwoza Mubi routes. They take no prisoners, and people are slaughtered on their farms weekly. Gwoza people will surely celebrate his demise,” as reported by Daily Trust.
This development follows the demise of Boko Haram’s former leader, Abubakar Shekau, who detonated himself during a confrontation with ISWAP fighters in May 2021. It highlights the ongoing power struggle and internal conflicts within the terrorist group.
Recent reports have also highlighted the continued attacks on farmers in the Goza axis, with 10 farmers losing their lives in 10 days. These attacks aim to intimidate farmers and disrupt food crop harvesting in the region, further emphasizing the security challenges local communities face.
