Pregnant woman killed with Three of her children

WAKADAILY News, The Nigeria Police are tracking down unknown gunmen who killed about 12 people, including the pregnant woman and her children, in Anambra the south-eastern part of Nigeria.

The Police blamed the increasing violence in the region on Biafra separatists.

A community leader noted that, the pregnant woman and her children were returning home on a motorcycle taxi when gunmen ambushed them in the Orumba Area in Anambra.

Other people were also shot dead in separate incident on Sunday evening, police said they are investigating it.

This happened a day after mutilated bodies of a local politician and his aide were discovered a week after they were abducted.

The security forces are also grappling with various armed groups carrying out killings and kidnappings in other parts of Nigeria.   In the Northeast of the country, more than 30 people were reported either killed or kidnapped in an attack in Borno State last Sunday.
Militants from Boko Haram an IS-linked groups are active in that region.

The widespread insecurity is a major concern ahead of elections due to take place by February next year.
