No fewer than 72 people were killed in different violent attacks across Nigeria last week. At least 32 people were also kidnapped during the period.

The number of victims killed increased from the 16 deaths recorded the previous week. The number of kidnapped victims also increased.

The latest killings occur despite the claim of the Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai, that the military has recorded “great success” in the fight against insecurity across the country.

Victims of last week’s attacks include two top Zamfara officials, the mother of a former Nigerian footballer and 10 military personnel.
