A few hours prior, ISWAP claimed that one of its militants had attacked a police car in Ondo State. 

An attack on a police roadblock in Edo State has been blamed on the Boko Haram offshoot supported by the Islamic State, the Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP), formerly known as Jam'at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da'wah wa'l-Jihd. 

The attack took place in the state on Thursday, September 22, 2022, according to ISWAP in a post that SaharaReporters was able to view. 

It was also mentioned that a police officer perished in the assault. 

Nigeria's South-South area includes Edo. 

A few hours prior, ISWAP claimed that one of its militants had attacked a police car in Ondo State.

According to the terrorist organization, the attack at Ipele, Owo Local Government Area of the state, was carried out by "soldiers of the caliphate." 

ISWAP's attacks on police checkpoints in the states of Edo and Ondo may be a sign that the group is heading south in Nigeria. 

In the previous six months, ISWAP claimed to have expanded into Abuja, Kogi, and Taraba. 

The organization claimed responsibility for an explosion that shook the historic town of Kabba in the Kogi West Senatorial District in May 2022. 

The Owe dialect of Yoruba is spoken by the locals in Kabba, which serves as the administrative center of the Kabba/Bunnu LGA.

The distance between the town and Omuo in Ekiti State and Akunnu-Akoko and Ajowa-Akoko in Ondo State is less than ten minutes and twenty minutes, respectively.
