boko haram killed 145 borno state

July 2nd, 2015 – Boko Haram Terrorists Killed 145 People In Borno Villages In 2 Days

The fighters of the dreaded Boko Haram sect laid a siege to some Borno communities between Tuesday and Wednesday night and killed 145 persons and injured several others.

Some of the deceased were killed in some mosques where the villagers had gone to pray after breaking Wednesday’s fast.

The attacks occurred in some villages in Monguno and Kukawa local government areas of the state.

The Tuesday attack was on Musarram village, located 8km away from Monguno town, in northern part of the troubled state, where 48 males where picked out by the insurgents and killed, according to a resident of the village and some fleeing residents.

In the second attack on Wednesday, the insurgents attacked Kukawa, a border town with Niger Republic and killed 97 persons, according to a fleeing resident, Abba Modu, who spoke to our correspondent in Maiduguri.

Another fleeing resident, Idi Isa, said over 48 persons were killed and 17 others injured when the insurgents attacked Musara, a village that is few kilometres to Monguno on Tuesday.

Isa, who claimed he escaped death by a whisker, said the well-armed terrorists numbering about 40 rounded up the villagers, sorted out the males and opened fire on them.

Isa said, “A total of 48 males died on the spot while 17 others escaped with serious injuries.”

Isa, who spoke on Thursday in Maiduguri, said the image of the killing was disturbing and he still felt he was still being hunted by the insurgents.

A member of the House of Representatives representing the area, Muhammed Tahir Monguno, who spoke to journalists on the telephone in Maiduguri, confirmed the sad incident.

He said, “I received the sad news yesterday (Wednesday) that Boko Haram terrorists had attacked some communities near Monguno.

“Since their dislodgment from the Sambisa Forest, many Boko Haram terrorists had relocated to areas around Monguno where they have been picking on hapless villagers and killing residents there.

“On Tuesday, the terrorists attacked the twin villages of Mussaram I and Mussaram II in the night. They went there when the villagers were resting after the day’s fasting and assembled them before opening fire on them.”

In the second attack on the historic Kukawa town on Wednesday, Modu said suspected Boko Haram terrorists killed about 97 persons.

Modu, a farmer who fled to Maiduguri, said over 50 suspected members of Boko Haram stormed Kukawa at about 6.30pm.

He said, “The terrorists first descended on Muslim worshippers in various mosques who were observing the Magrib prayers shortly after breaking their fast.”

He said after the attack on the worshippers, they rounded up about four different communities where they went to their mosques and opened fire on the worshippers who were mostly men and young children.

Modu said, “They spared nobody and they even took time out to set most of the corpses on fire.

“They equally proceeded to houses and shot indiscriminately at women who were preparing food.”

One of the bereaved residents of the town, Yusuf Aisami, said the terrorists killed his aunt.

He said, “They killed my uncle and his children. They killed his children, about five of them and set his entire house ablaze. I can tell you that the attackers killed at least 97 persons in the attack.”

A member of the vigilante group in the area, Modu Kurawa, said the attack was on for over four hours.

Kurawa said, “There was no single soldier in Kukawa when the terrorists came around 6.30pm. The soldiers were in Kuros-Kawwa which is just 11 kilometres away. The terrorists stole assorted foodstuff from houses and homes and then set everything ablaze. They left around 11 pm.”

There was no immediate comment on the attack from both the military and the police in Maiduguri.

  1. Where in the world would one find an army, press or government that acts like business as usual when a wicked group attacks innocent people willy nilly. This boko haram operation is becoming a permanent element of our many problems. Cant we just treat this scourge as the real war it is? The army should divide maiduguri into command zones with dedicated and accountable generals in each, install mobile tactical centres in each, deploy multiple battalions, armounry, logistics and reconaissance resources like automated light weight drones that can survey ground movement. Coupled with stealth patrols and armbush squads to seek this evil and drive to attack and destroy. The army should go for 100% offensive and not a lukewarm react or escape approach. Come on soldiers, act, be brave and stand for something- dismiss and jail corrupt commanders, bring back motivation and gallantry. Do i as a civilian need to even be giving this advice????

  2. Nice one Ayo. Your brilliant idea was is quiet. Just forget Nigeria Army, some of them got this idea but they cannot initiate it because corruption has eating down deep their heart. No body want to die idea burshiiit. As a soldier, if you can’t save your country from unscrupulous terrorist company why then are you there as a soldier. God…..have mercy on poor defenseless Nigeria……Amen

  3. I don’t understand this boko haram again,buhari said he’ll stop them in a week… They are now killing people everyday. Jonathan’s tenor,the killing was monthly… So far,the killing rate between 2014 to july 2015 is more than 5000. What would happen @ the end of the year?

  4. I DONT EVEN EXPECT A DUMP PERSON TO BE ACCUSING PRESIDENT BUHARI FOR NOT DOING ANYTHING AT THE MOMENT BECAUSE EVEN IN EVERYONE’S HOUSES IF THERE IS NO MONEY NOTHING CAN BE DONE.SO WHAT CAN THE PRESIDENT DO FOR NOW RATHER THAN TO FIRST LOOK FOR A WAY TO GENERATE MONEY INTO NIGERIA’S ACCOUNT AFTER NIGERIAN’S MONEY HAS BEEN LOOTED BY SOME GREEDY AND SELFISH PEOPLE. ALREADY NIGERIAN’S ACCOUNT IS IN MINUS AND YOU EXPECT THE PRESIDENT TO PERFORM MIRACLE WITHING THIS FEW WEEKS. PEOPLE SHOULD HAVE THE FEAR OF GOD WHEN THEY WANT TO COMMENT ABOUT THE PRESIDENT AND PUT SENTIMENT ASIDE. I’M NOT A POLITICIAN NEITHER I’M I FROM THE NORTH, THIS IS SIMPLE ARITHMETIC.

    • My friend Nigeria have lots of money, yes gej government was corrupt, so the past, the truth is that he need time to plan, not money, we just need to have patients at least one year, do know how much America is owning, or Germany name all the big countries, they all owe like 100 time of ours.

      What need most now is unity or we will fall, do little example the ntl assembly house rep election, if apc have thought national power sharing in respective who voted for them or not, the won’t have this problem, this is just a small lesson, God bless 9ja,
