Niger confirms 50 victims of terrorist attacks in one week in its western region of Tillabéri.
Residents of the region have described the situation as unacceptable as they demand for radical measures to improve security in the region.
Over the weekend, a platform called the Tillaberi Union Committee for Peace and Social Cohesion held a General Assembly in Niamey – the capital.
The participants announced their willingness to get directly involved in the fight against insecurity in the region.
By what means? No further explanation for the moment.
Committee leaders indicate that discussions are underway to develop a plan.
The coordinator of the Union of Tillaberi Committee for Peace, Security and Social Cohesion is Amadou Harouna Maïga.
He is speaking to Mourtala Zoubeirou, WADR French-Service correspondent in the Nigerien capital.
