Pledged allegiance: A Boko Haram militant casually poses in front of the Islamic State terror group's sinister black and white flag while brandishing an assault rifle

Influence: The slick photographs carry all the logos and artwork typically seen in official ISIS releases, suggesting the Middle East-based militants have taken full control of Boko Haram propaganda

Boko Haram Insurgents have released the first images of their terror activities since pledging allegiance to ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

Earlier this year the group’s leader, Abubakar Shekau, released a video saying the group had pledged allegiance to ISIS and would be dropping the name Boko Haram.

Instead they now refer to themselves as Wilayat al Sudan al Gharbi, which is commonly translated into English as the ‘West African Province’ of the Islamic State.

The images show the jihadis casually posing in front of the terror group’s sinister black and white flag while brandishing assault rifles.

The slick photographs carry all the logos and artwork typically seen in official ISIS releases, suggesting the Middle East-based militants have taken full control of Boko Haram propaganda.

This is coming after Nigerian soldiers invaded the Sambisa forest in an effort to finally defeat the six-year-old insurgency.

Over the last six years, Boko Haram have killed thousands and kidnapped hundreds in a battle to establish an Islamic caliphate in Nigeria.
