Nigeria: Islamic State’s West Africa Province (ISWAP) jihadists kill 5 soldiers and kidnap 35 civilians
In yet another attack on Nigeria, a group of jihadist gunmen attacked a military convoy and killed nearly five soldiers, military sources reported on Sunday.
Terrorism-hit Nigeria saw two different attacks. Almost 35 civilians were kidnapped and one woman was killed in the second attack which took place in the northeast Borno state.
A group of armed men attacked a transport envoy on Saturday and kidnapped civilians by faking a checkpoint. “The ISWAP terrorists who were dressed in military uniform stopped the vehicles…Some of the passengers fled into the bush while 35 were taken hostage,” a source revealed.
