LEADERS of IS are sneaking battle-hardened jihadis from Syria into Nigeria to train terrorists there for possible attacks in Britain.
Fanatics from the West African state are also being sent to the Middle East for training in a chilling “exchange programme”.
Now more than 150 British troops are conducting counter-terror training with Nigerian forces in an attempt to stem the bloody tide — and stop IS taking hold in the region.
At one training mission in the northern city of Kaduna, a senior Nigerian Air Force commander revealed how his country’s jihadi groups were learning from IS after swearing allegiance to its black flag.
Group Captain Isaac Subi, 46, who has been fighting terrorism across Africa since 1991, said: “They come and train their fighters here and some of our insurgents too are granted access to their training in Yemen and Syria, acquiring those skills and they come back and teach others.
They have this exchange programme of fighters.”
Their poisonous influence has already ended in horror attacks on British streets.
