The information by a private local media house, which was confirmed by an elected local representative who was contacted by Xinhua, indicated that one of the five victims during the attack that occurred Monday, was cut into pieces by the assailants who took away his entire herd of livestock.

The other four were shot. The remains of all these victims were buried on Wednesday in N’guigmi territory within the same region, while the injured victim was taken to hospital in the same locality.

The attack comes at a time when Nigerien contingents taking part in a joint operation involving forces from Niger, Chad, Cameroon and Nigeria, had managed to conquer, since July 28, the Nigerian towns of Doutsi and Damasak, which are considered to be the strongholds of this jihadist sect.

Since February 2015, Niger’s eastern regions of Bosso and Diffa, which border Nigeria, have come under targeted attacks from Boko Haram from its positions in Nigeria, leaving hundreds of civilians and soldiers dead and thousands of others displaced in Niger and Nigeria. Enditem
