20 fishermen killed as #NigerianAirForce mistakingly bombs civilians in #Borno — report

Share This


At least 20 fishermen have been killed accidently after Nigeria's military targeted a militant camp in the country's northeast, two security sources and locals told the AFP news agency.

A Nigerian fighter jet early on Sunday bombarded Kwatar Daban Masara in Lake Chad, which straddles #Nigeria and neighbouring Niger, Chad and Cameroon, the sources said on Monday. 

The area is a bastion for the Daesh-affiliated Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP).

The reports of casualties came less than two weeks after officials say another air strike on a village killed nine civilians in Nigeria's northeast where the military is battling a 12-year militant insurgency.
