Boko Haram, ISWAP caliphate springs up in Niger state

The government of Niger State have sounded the alarm that terrorists including the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) and Boko Haram are planning to establish a caliphate in the state.

Ahmed Matane, Secretary to the State Government (SSG), made the announcement at a press conference on Tuesday in Minna, the state capital.

He also said that intelligent report at government’s disposal reveals that bandits have begun to align with insurgents to indoctrinate residents in some communities of the state to imbibe strict Islamic ideology and ban women from going to school.

The SSG listed some of the communities visited by the insurgents to include Koki, Madaka, Kurebe, Kusare, and Chukuba, where residents were assured of protection but asked to embark on civil disobedience and reject western education.
