Bomb Blast Displaces 8,000 People In Niger Community
No fewer than 8,150 people were displaced from Galadima-Kogo and environs in Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State when an aircraft bombed the area on Jan. 24.
Many members of a vigilance group in the area were killed, while their commander sustained serious injuries.
The area bombed had Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) taking refuge at some facilities.
One of the displaced victims, Hajiya Rabi Musa, told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) that residents saw the aircraft flying through on Tuesday only to hear a very loud bang that shook the area.
“Many of our people were killed, aside from the vigilante members. We ran to take shelter at the NSP facilities; right now no single person is left in our community; it is deserted.
