Armed group in Nigeria kills seven civilians

Abuja, Sep 6 (Prensa Latina) A group of alleged Islamic terrorists killed seven civilians and kidnapped 12 others after an armed attack in the northern Nigerian state of Katsina, the Premium Times website reported today.

According to the media, citing police sources, the assailants’ actions took place in the town of Doka, where criminal elements and radical Islamist insurgents operate, according to reports.

In northern areas of the country, the Army recently eliminated about 40 extremist elements and arrested 157 of them in the context of the operations of the armed forces against radical groups, reported the Director of Defense Media Operations, Major General Edward Buba.

For several years, government troops have been fighting Boko Haram groups and the Islamic State in the West African province, which are trying to impose a radical Islamist state in the country, which has a Muslim majority in the north and a Christian majority in the south.
