Early callers to the communities were said to include victims of the bomb explosion, who were trying to determine the extent of the damage inflicted by terrorists.
The Nation heard recurring sounds like explosives coming from the Galadima Kogo axis, according to sources in the Shiroro local government area.
The majority of the people were concerned about the bomb explosion, which they described as a new terrorist ploy.
When the Nation called, the Niger Police spokesman, DSP Abiodun Wasiu, was unavailable because his phone was dead.
Sani Abubakar Kokki, the Co-Convener of Concerned Shiroro Youths, confirmed the attack.
He expressed concern about the attacks in Galadima Kogo district.
“To say we’re hopeless and helpless is an understatement; our collective survival has been put on life support since then.”
“The dreaded terrorists have us at their mercy.” They are the ones who choose who will live and who will die! This current reality is both depressing and terrifying.”
He also confirmed that explosives were detonated after the night raid, but that the extent of the damage could not be determined at the time of the call.
