18 Killed As Gunmen Attack Mosque in Northern Nigeria

At least 18 people at a mosque in Niger state in northern Nigeria have been killed by armed men on Monday

According to an eyewitness, the attackers arrived in the Maza-Kuka community of Mashegu local government area at roughly.

Resident Abdulganiyu Hassan said, “they came and went straight to the mosque and shot at worshippers without sparing anyone,”

Hassan said they abducted more than 10 others. Bello Ayuba, another resident and witness, said at least 20 were wounded.

Armed bandits operating for cash have kidnapped or killed hundreds across northwest Nigeria this year, but Niger state and local government officials also recently said that Islamist militant group Boko Haram had taken over multiple communities in the state, offering villagers money and incorporating them in their ranks to fight the government.
