Two days after Boko Haram terrorists carried out suicide bombings in N’Djamena, capital of Chad, the group has reportedly killed at least 30 people in neighbouring Niger Republic.
Reports by Reuters said security sources confirmed that the attack happened in about two villages in the Diffa region of the country.
The report quoted one of the security sources as saying, “The attackers drove into the villages in the Gueskerou area with cars and motorbikes and shot residents before setting fire to the mostly straw thatched houses where others were hiding. In all, at least 30 were killed. Some of them died when the houses were set alight.”
Gueskerou is along the banks of the Komadugu River separating Niger from Nigeria. Both Chad and Niger have troops in the Multi-national joint taskforce, MTNJF waging a battle against insurgency in sub-Sahara Africa.
