Army launches attacks against Katsina bandits

The Nigerian Army, mainly from the 17 Brigade, Katsina, on Wednesday launched attacks on bandits hideouts and camps in the forest in Jibia.

The actions were still on as of press time.

 

The spokesman for the Brigade, Captain Kayode Owolabi, confirmed the development, but could not give the precise figures of the bandits who had been neutralised, adding that the action was still on.

 

The spokesman said,

“For now we cannot confirm the number of bandits neutralised but we are hitting them.”

He said two soldiers wounded in action had been moved to Katsina for treatment.

Gunmen suspected to be bandits had earlier in the day abducted four Customs men at Dan- Bedi village.

The bandits had also on Tuesday stormed a viewing centre in Magama Jibia, killing two viewers and injuring many.

Militant attack in Nigerian town kills 20 soldiers, displaces 1,000 residents

MAIDUGURI, Nigeria, Jan 8 (Reuters) – About 20 soldiers were killed and nearly 1,000 people made homeless in a militant attack on a town in northeastern Nigeria, two residents and a military source said on Wednesday.

The militants entered Monguno in Borno state posing as a convoy of soldiers on Tuesday evening, the sources said. They then attacked troops inside the town, destroying at least 750 homes in the process.

Resident Gumati Sadu said people fled into the bush for safety during the fighting and that three civilians were killed by stray bullets.

 

 

A military spokesman declined to comment.

Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) claimed responsibility for the attack on its Amaq news agency.

It said that one of its militants detonated a car bomb in the town, killing at least 8 soldiers and destroying 3 armoured vehicles.

The group also said it had seized a vehicle, weapons and ammunition before leaving the town.

ISWAP split from Islamist group Boko Haram in 2016 and has since staged its own frequent attacks in the region.

Boko Haram’s decade-long insurgency campaign has killed thousands and displaced millions in northeastern Nigeria.

Thousands in Monguno had already been displaced from their homes elsewhere in Borno state by militants. Aid group Medecins Sans Frontieres warned last year that many thousands in Monguno lacked proper shelter, water, sanitation and food.

2 kicked out of National Guard over white supremacist ties

ATLANTA (AP) — Two men have been kicked out of the Army National Guard after liberal activists uncovered their membership in a religious group with white supremacist ties.

 

Brandon Trent East told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that the Alabama National Guard sent him a separation notice on Dec. 14.

A spokeswoman for the Georgia National Guard said Dalton Woodward is no longer a member. She declined to comment on the terms of Woodward’s separation.

Woodward didn’t respond to a request for comment left with his friend East.

 

Earlier in 2019, the Atlanta Antifacists group published a report saying East and Woodward were leaders of the Norse pagan group Ravensblood Kindred. The group is part of the Asatru Folk Assembly, which researchers say endorses white supremacy.

Haralson County Sheriff Eddie Mixon earlier forced East to resign as a jailer.

When the report was published, Woodward was on active duty in Afghanistan.

Woodward’s unit returned from deployment in June and an investigation into his connections with white supremacy concluded in October.

The military has struggled in recent years to root out members of white supremacist organizations or sympathizers with white power causes.

A spokesman for the Alabama National Guard said East has 45 days to contest the findings. East said the Army recommends a general discharge. That’s a step down from a traditional honorable discharge, indicating unacceptable conduct not in accord with military standards.

East contends he is not a racist, and is just interested in worshiping the way his ancestors did centuries ago.

“The whole race thing started with me finding Asatru or Odinism or whatever you want to call it and seeing that as a better option than Christianity as a spirituality,” he said.

East and Woodward attended a 2017 speech by white nationalist Richard Spencer at Auburn University. Photos show the men carrying signs.

“The existence of our people is not negotiable,” East’s sign read. Woodward’s sign read, “We have a right to exist.”

Both echo the so-called “14 words” motto popular among white supremacists who say non-white groups are displacing whites.

“I just went there because at the time I heard he was talking about the recent removal of Confederate monuments. That’s something I wanted to hear,” East said. “And it turned into a something a little worse obviously.”

Along with his jailer job, East said the resulting attention has cost him other jobs, as well as friends and family members.

He minimized his contact on social media with neo-Nazis and white supremacists. He said he stays away from those that are “Hitler worshipy.”
