Suspected members of the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) have struck again in the north-eastern part of Nigeria.
This time around, they reportedly kidnapped hundreds of hostages in Borno State. It was gathered that the Jihadists linked to the Islamic State group, late Tuesday overran Kukawa in the Lake Chad region, seizing people who had just returned to their homes after spending two years in a displacement camp, said Babakura Kolo, head of a local militia.
While the Nigerian government believes the terrorist groups have been technically defeated, they have continued to inflict massive damages on the Nigerian Amry. In June, at least 20 soldiers and more than 40 civilians were killed and hundreds injured in twin attacks carried out by the group.
