Insecurity: Eight killed as violent attacks across Nigeria last week drop

Violent attacks reduced drastically across Nigeria last week. Eight persons were killed across the country while there were only four reported kidnap cases.

This is the lowest in the last 10 weeks that Premium Times have been tracking the number of dead and kidnap victims in violent attacks across the country.

The newspaper reported how 282 were killed last month. However, there was no major attack, such as mass kidnap cases and bomb attacks by Boko Haram. In fact, states known for violence were relatively safe.

The major attacks last week claimed the lives of four police officers. Three of these officers were shot by soldiers who also allegedly rescued a kidnap suspect from the custody of the police.

While the Nigerian Army said the soldiers mistook the police for kidnappers, Nigerians are demanding answers to how the suspect arrested by police escaped.
