Residents of a particular state in Nigeria have been urged to be on the alert as armed Fulani group is planning to attack them.
Fulani group planning terror attack in Kano state
The terrorists, who have continued to operate unhindered in most parts of Nigeria, are planning a series of attacks and kidnappings at Kofar Dukayuwa and surrounding areas in Kano State.
SaharaReporters had in the past given similar alerts based on intelligence reports, which turned out to be accurate.
In January 2020, the New York-based news organisation alerted that terror group, Jama'atu Ansril Musilma Naijeriya better known as Ansaru, was planning attacks on Kaduna, Niger, Edo, Kwara and Kogi states after receiving tons of ammunition from a Chinese smuggler in Burkina Faso.
The listed states have since come under heavy attacks by armed Fulani herdsmen and bandits.
Similarly, the Islamic State in West Africa has reportedly appointed female heads to lead units of the terror group for the first time.
A woman, Ya Fana, is now the Amir of Tumbun Mourfou unit while Ya Falmata is leading the Tumbun Alloura unit, which controls the Lake Chad area and surrounding villages.
