More than 30 insurgents killed in Nigeria

Abuja, April 4: More than 30 insurgents were killed in an early morning raid by military operatives in Nigeria’s north central Nasarawa state, witnesses said Thursday.

Residents said 10 lifeless bodies of suspected insurgents littered Mararaban Giza, a community in Keana local government area of the northern state, after an invasion by security operatives deployed to restore normalcy in the locality, following series of recent communal clashes between herdsmen and the local people, Xinhua reported.

More than 20 corpses were also deposited at the morgue of a state-run hospital in Lafia, capital of the state, said Audu Abubakar, a resident. “Many other bodies are yet to be recovered from bushes in our area,” he added.
