Dozens of Nigerians die at the hands of armed gangs

Abuja, Dec 20 (Prensa Latina)This Monday,between 28 and 37 civilians were killed by members of armed gangs in two villages in northern nigeria, according to different reports circulating in this capital: Official sources in the state of Kaduna (north) said that the Army deployed forces in the villages of Malagum 1 and Sakwong, scenes of the massacres, with the mission of killing the perpetrators, who also set fire to houses and vehicles before disappearing in the bush.

The attacks are part of a growing sequence of similar actions by armed gangs looting villages, stealing cattle and killing villagers in the north and northwest of the country, whom Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari describes as ‘enemies of humanity’.

Although not politically identified, media in the capital note a growing identification between the gangs and the Islamist group Boko Haram, the main enemy of the Nigerian central authorities whose headquarters are in the northeastern state of Borno.
