Terrorists suspected to be members of the Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) have attacked a community in Niger State on Tuesday night killing at least six persons.
Reports gathered on Wednesday morning revealed that the terrorists invaded the suburbs of Rafi and Wushishi local government areas yesterday and killed a pregnant woman and five other persons whose identities are yet to be confirmed.
No fewer than fifty people were reportedly kidnapped by the assailants who operated around the Anawanka, Sabon Gari and Kundu axis of the two local government areas late at night yesterday.
It was also learnt that a Nigeria Air Force (NAF) fighter jet engaged the bandits for several hours, but the detail of the operation or otherwise was not yet known.
The State Commissioner for Internal Security and Humanitarian Affairs, Emmanuel Umar, has confirmed the incident to newsmen but was yet to ascertain the details of the attack.
