Foreign journalist claims ISIS is in Nigeria and responsible for attack in Kogi state

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that a foreign journalist, Evan Kohlmann, has claimed that ISIS terrorists are currently in Nigeria and they have a cell in Nigeria..(Read More Here).

Evan Kohlmann tweeted: "ISIS has claimed responsibility for an attack targeting a Nigerian army checkpoint in the town of Mairi in Nigeria's Borno State." 

A resident of the area had stated that the explosion occurred when some people, including masquerades, gathered to celebrate the annual Echane festival in Okene.

He disclosed that the sound of the explosion affected many residents of the area, adding that a man whose name and address were yet to be identified lost two of his legs, while many others sustained injuries.

The source added that one of the victims of the explosion died on the way to Okengwe General Hospital where the victims were taken to, for medical treatment.

The explosion in Okene came few days after a similar explosion occurred in a beer parlour in Kabba, where 11 persons were injured.

ISIS in a statement during the weekend said the attack was carried out by “soldiers of the caliphate.”

The group said 20 persons were injured while a woman, her child and others were burnt in the explosion.

ISIS had also claimed responsibility for the explosion in Kabba, Kogi West Senatorial District.

If the attacks were executed by the insurgents as claimed, it, therefore, indicates the terror group is moving towards the Southern part of Nigeria.
