Between midday and Thursday night, Boko Haram members killed 16 people who were praying in a mosque in the North Central Niger state. Later, they later killed the commissioner of Science and Technology in his home in Kasina state, according to official reports released in this capital.

Although the presidential communiqué tacitly accuses the Islamists, they have refrained from claiming responsibility for the action.

The attack on the worshipers in the village of Baare follows the assassinations just a month ago of 18 people who were praying in a mosque in the village of Mazakuka, in the same area, it was recalled.

Boko Haram is an armed Islamic movement loyal to the Islamic State. Its headquarters is in the state of Borno (northeast) and it operates in Nigeria, as well as in Chad, Cameroon and Niger, whose armies collaborate with the Nigerian army in a vast joint operation to eliminate it, but without tangible results so far.
