Last Saturday, in a rural part of northeastern Nigeria, several armed men riding motorcycles descended on farmers working in their fields. The resulting attack left at least 110 people dead and wounded many others.
Todd Nettleton, host of Voice of the Martyrs Radio, says, “There are also believed to have been some people who were [taken captive] in the attacks. What we don’t know for sure is exactly who perpetrated the attack. There are two groups active in that part of Nigeria. One is Boko Haram, which is one we’re all at least somewhat familiar with. The other is the Islamic State West Africa Province, or ISWAP. That one people are less familiar with. And right now, it’s not 100% clear exactly who the attackers were.”
