On 30 October 2021, all official Islamic State channels, on various platforms and sites, published video number five in the "Makers of Epic Battles" series, this time focusing on Wilayah West Africa. The publication of the "Makers of Epic Battles" video series began in March 2021. The first was the violent video of Wilayah Pakistan (Islamic State Pakistan Province - ISPP ). This was followed in April by the Wilayah Sinai video, in May the third issue focused on Iraq, and, finally, the fourth issue in July 2021 focused on the Islamic State Khurasan Province (ISKP) referring to operations in Afghanistan. After three months (unlike the previous ones which were published almost every 30/40 days), the video for Wilayah West Africa was released, referring to Nigeria .
