February 08, (THEWILL) – At least three soldiers and two vigilante group members have been killed in an attack by suspected bandits in the Toto Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.

Nasarawa State Commissioner for Special Duties, Security, Timothy Kasuwa, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said they were ambushed during a clearance operation.

Noting that more security operatives had been sent to the area to forestall further breakdown of law and order, the Commissioner said the State Government had taken over the matter.


Meanwhile, suspected Islamic of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists have killed a Police Inspector and two others in the Kukareta community, in Damaturu Local Government Area of Yobe State.

According to Zagazola Makama, a Counter-Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad, the attack occurred around 3 am on Sunday, February 4, when troops of 233 Battalion Location on the outskirts of Kukareta village along Damaturu-Maiduguri Road came under attack by the ISWAP terrorists.

“The troops engaged them in a heavy gunbattle, which forced them to retreat. Unfortunately, a Police Inspector was hit by a stray bullet before they fled into Kukareta village.

“While fleeing through the village, they decided to attack the home of the district head. They knocked on his door, but sensing danger, the district head escaped with his wife through the back door. The terrorists later gained access into the house and killed two people and also burnt the district head’s vehicle as well as carted away another vehicle belonging to the vigilantes,” a source told Makama.
