ISWAP Claims Deadly Bombing In Northeast Nigeria
Several people were killed and injured in an attack in Taraba state, Northeast Nigeria, involving an explosive device.
The Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) has claimed responsibility for a deadly explosion that killed several people at a bar in Taraba in Northeast Nigeria on Tuesday, April 19.
An explosive device was reported to have set off an explosion in a bar in Iware Community in Ardo Kola Local Government Area (LGA) of the state.
At least seven persons were reported dead in the blast, according to a source in an earlier Premium Times report on the incident.
The police were also quoted to have said three people were killed and 19 others sustained injuries and were being treated at the Federal Medical Center in Jalingo, the state capital.
The attack in Taraba is likely to raise concerns as the state has mostly been spared from the violent insurgency and terrorism that has ravaged northeastern Nigeria.
