why are terrorists targeting Arbinda more?

The terrorist attack on Wednesday, August 18, in which 80 people died, took place in the northern part of the country on the Gorgadji-Abinda axis, an area that has been difficult to access since 2019 and regularly targeted by terrorist groups.

Why is this area so targeted? To understand this, RFI contacted this expert consultant, living in Djibo, not far from Arbinda, who works for a civil society organization. However, he wants to remain anonymous.

The goal today is to lock in Arbinda [qui] constitutes a strategic point for the armed groups. By weakening Arbinda, we have direct access to the capital in the center-north, Kaya.

“Arbinda is a strategic lock”
