Boko Haram hoists flag in Niger village


Boko Haram terrorists have hoisted their flag in Kaure Village under Shiroro Local Government Area of Niger State.

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello disclosed this when he visited the Internally Displaced Persons camp at the IBB Primary School near the palace of Emir of Minna.

The primary school was hurriedly turned to IDP camp following the sacking of nearly 5000 villagers from their ancestral homes in Shiroro and Munya local government areas.
