New Islamic Terrorist Group Takes Over In Sokoto

A new terrorist group, which members brandish sophisticated weapons, has reportedly emerged in Tangaza Local Government Area of Sokoto State.

Premium Times reports that the group is now applying ‘strange laws’ and punishing defaulters.

It quoted a witness as saying that members of the group, believed to be from Niger Republic, are in possession of assorted weapons, preaching Islamic teachings, forcefully collecting alms (zakat) and flogging defaulters.

“Though members of the terror group are yet to be identified by name, and have been in the area for than two months, they are allegedly recruiting youth in a nearby bush. After ‘training’ them, they give them a motorcycle,” the witness, who pleaded anonymity, said.
According to him, members of the group are more than 200.

He said they looked strange, spoke Arabic and wore turbans over their heads.

“They imposed compulsory levies on each household with cows and rams. Those with cows are paying N500 and those with ram are paying N200,” he said.

“They are arresting and fining herdsmen who encroach on farmlands and are keeping the money.

“They are operating freely, scaring residents, without being challenged. They are going from one community to another,” the witness said.
