Shahidullah Shahid, former spokesperson of the Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP), who was sacked last year after he pledged allegiance to Isis, has reportedly been killed in a drone strike in Afghanistan. 

Afghanistan's National Directorate of Security said through its Twitter account that the Isis commander was killed in an airstrike in Nangarhar province. 

Shahidullah Shahid, whose real name is said to be Sheikh Maqbool, had defected to Isis last year along with several other Pakistan Taliban (TTP) members. 

He had pledged his allegiance to the Islamic State through a video posted online last October.

Several other Isis members were also killed in the drone strike, the Afghan intelligence agency said.
