Meanwhile, one of the employees escaped unharmed.
Throughout the week, the terror group released various images depicting the abduction.
A police officer and two other abductees were also photographed.
ISWAP has been consolidating its influence in areas around Lake Chad since the death of rebel leader Abubakar Shekau.
Wali Sani Shuwaram, 45, was recently appointed as the new Leader (Wali) of ISWAP in Lake Chad.
Hundreds of Boko Haram fighters have defected to Shekau, increasing the sect’s membership.
The Nigerian Army has stated that the insurgency has been mostly defeated on numerous occasions, while downplaying any losses.
