Addressing a press briefing at the weekend in Abuja, Sayyidi Yahaya, national secretary of the group, said 16 of its members were killed on their way to Senegal.

He said members of the group regularly visit Senegal, the home country of their leader, Ibrahim Niasse Al-Kaulahee, for conferences and Maulid celebrations.

“During such movements, convoys of vehicles from Nigeria used to travel through international borders to Kaolack, Senegal, traversing countries such as Niger, Burkina-Faso, and Mali,” Yahaya said.

He said a delegation of Nigerians in buses was stopped by the Burkinabe army on patrol and asked to disembark from their vehicles.

“They were randomly selected without any questioning and cold-bloodedly shot to death in a most horrendous display of bestiality. The current number of casualties is 16 dead while some vehicles and their occupants are yet to be accounted for.”
