UN EXPERTS: AFRICA WORST HIT BY TERRORISM IN 2021
NIGERIA RECEIVES SIX FIGHTER JETS
According to a panel of experts in a report to the United Nations Security Council circulated on Friday, Africa became the region’s hardest hit by terrorism in the first half of 2021 as the Islamic State and al-Qaida extremist groups and their affiliates spread their influence, especially in parts of West Africa like Nigeria. The UN experts are concerned that these extremist groups are boasting gains in supporters and territory and inflicting the greatest casualties, while growing capabilities in fundraising and weapons, including the use of drones. These insights came a day after the Nigerian Airforce received a boost with the arrival of Six A29 Super Tucano aircrafts l from the United States, four years after the country agreed to sell Nigeria the light attack aircrafts to fight insurgents.
