Boko Haram Terrorists Who Killed 4 NSCDC Operatives Invade Niger Villages to Loot Foodstuff

The Boko Haram terrorists who killed four operatives of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC) in Niger State earlier this week have attacked Chubadi, Mangoro and Argida communities in the State.

Sources said that the terrorists invaded the three communities within the Shiroro axis on Monday evening in an attempt to loot foodstuff and other logistic provisions.

However, the Boko Haram fighters could not succeed in their mission as troops, with the support of vigilantes from neighbouring Zuru town, in Kebbi State, foiled their ‘robbery’ attempts.

“The swift response of army troops and local vigilantes who came from Kebbi State, precisely Zuru, averted the looting attack and bloody carnage on villagers in Chubadi, Mangoro and Argida,” one of the local sources added.

It would be recalled that four officers of the NSCDC were killed this week by landmines planted by terrorists on a road along the Galadiman Kogo axis in Shiroro LGA.

A source stated that the Civil Defence operatives were killed when their patrol van ran into some planted explosives on the road.

The deceased officers are: ASC I Mohammed Ibrahim, ASC I I Cheche Ahmed, IC Yunusa Mahmam and CAI Bala Abdullahi.

The pilot, who survived the ambush, is currently receiving treatment at an undisclosed hospital in Shiroro town.

Meanwhile, a military intelligence source confirmed to PRNigeria that Boko Haram terrorists are behind the recent atrocities in the area.

“The sophisticated weapons they use, the hoisting of flags and the secretive ways they plant the IEDs are clear signatures of Boko Haram terrorists.

“Even with the aerial bombing, ground operations are being hampered by planted IEDs which require sweeping to defuse affected areas.

“We can’t move without advisories from bomb experts on the safety of our troops and the routes.

“You may recall that last month, over 50 Boko Haram terrorists on a reprisal mission after the killing and arrest of their members and recovery of over 500 animals, launched the bloodiest attack on the camp of Joint Security Task Force in the same Galadiman Kogo district. They killed 11 security personnel including intelligence operatives,” he concluded.

PRNigeria gathered that the camp of the Joint Security Task Force stationed at Kuchi in Munya was later shut down.
