Boko Haram terrorists have renewed attacks on villagers in Borno despite the Nigerian Federal Government’s promise to overcome them.
The terrrorists attacked Mbuta and Alkideow villages located at the central part of Borno in the early morning hours of Thursday, killing over 21.
A military source said the insurgents rode to the villages on motorcycles and fired several shots into peoples’ houses to announce their presence. “They started shooting at fleeing residents after setting houses ablaze at Mbuta and later proceeded to the nearest village of Alkideow to wreak more havoc,” the source said. The villages are in Mafa Local Government, one of the 12 councils under Boko Haram
A youth vigilante member, Ali Mustapha told Saturday Sun the insurgents were over a dozen according to account by villagers, adding that they invaded the two communities at 4.30am on Thursday and “continued the attack till day break.” He said the military was not alerted in time as the insurgents succeeded in killing many people.
