Armed gangs have killed 18 people in the Nigerian state of Jambara


Two residents said Wednesday that gunmen have killed at least 18 people and set fire to cars and shops in the Nigerian state of Jambara as the government cut off communications as part of a security operation against kidnapping groups.

Northwestern Nigeria has been in crisis since late 2020, with armed groups launching abductions of school children and other attacks on residents traveling on villages and roads.

Residents said the village of Kurian Madaro in Jambara was attacked at around 9pm on Tuesday night and dozens of armed men entered the village on motorcycles.

Abu Bakr said to Jacob; A man from the village, who was traveling to the neighboring state of Keppe, told Reuters by phone that the gunmen had opened fire indiscriminately and forced the villagers to flee.

Abu Bakr Abdullah al-Hassan insisted; He is a lecturer at KP State Polytechnic and had relatives in Jambara when the attack took place.
