A terror group with links to ISIS has claimed responsibility for a deadly attack on a motorcade carrying a Nigerian state governor.

Borno State Gov. Kashim Shettima’s motorcade was traveling from the state capital of Maiduguri to a campaign rally in the village of Gamboru when it was ambushed Tuesday night. The Islamic State’s West Africa Province terror group has claimed responsibility, according to the SITE Intelligence Group.

Isa Gusau, a media aide for Shettima, told CNN on Thursday that security agencies were investigating the attack that he said killed three people. The terror group claimed that 42 people died in the assault.

Militants ambushed the governor to attract media attention and spread its “propaganda strategy,” Gusau said.
