The Secretary to the Niger State Government, Ahmed Matane, says the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) and Boko Haram terrorists are planning to establish a camp in Niger.
He said this on Tuesday while briefing reporters in Minna, the state capital.
He decried the increased rate of attacks by bandits on innocent residents in recent weeks, saying they were now collaborating with insurgents to worsen the security situation in the state.
According to him, the insurgents – who have carried out attacks that have killed hundreds of thousands of people in the North East over the years – were suspected to be present already in two local government areas of the state.
