Catastrophe as Nigeria Air force bomb drops on wedding guests in Niger State! 2

A Nigerian Air Force jet while targeting bandits shelled a bomb on some wedding guests in a remote area of Niger State according to PR Nigeria.

Although the airstrikes led to the killing of some bandits and cattle rustlers who were fleeing the area but unfortunately one of the bombs hit a wedding venue in which some guests were killed.

The blog reported that;

“One of the bombs allegedly strayed at a wedding party in an adjoining village.”

A witness also confirmed the incident;

“We saw the small aircraft dropping bombs from afar on the location of fleeing bandits and one of the explosives hit a wedding event in Argida Village.

“Two villagers were also killed, unfortunately. We gathered that several others, who were guests at the wedding feast, sustain injuries,” PRNigeria reported citing a witness.

It is not the first time that a Nigerian Airforce airstrike will be killing civilians. In January 2017, it mistakenly bombed an Internally displaced camp in Rann which led to the death of 115 people. 

Also in April 2021, the Air Force in an airstrike killed some Nigerian soldiers in Borno State as it mistook them for Boko Haram insurgents.
