According to Nigerian media such as The Guardian and The Nation on February 3, on the evening of the 1st, more than 100 (also about 300) armed elements on motorcycles attacked the border of Niger in the central and western Niger.
Four of the communities within resulted in 21 deaths and about 40 abductions. According to the government of Kaduna state in northern Nepal, three people were killed in two local government areas of the state in the attack on the 1st.
The security situation in Nigeria has been poor for a long time.
In addition to the terrorist attacks launched by the extremist organization Boko Haram from time to time, armed attacks, kidnappings, looting and other security cases of bandits in the country are also frequent.
At least 348 people were killed and 411 abducted in the last month of last year across Nigeria, according to the December 2020 Violence Report released by the NGO Nigeria Mourns in January.
