Feb 12, 2014 – Konduga Attack: Boko Haram Murdered 45 In Borno State
Over 40 people have died in a remote town in Borno state.
Yesterday evening some suspected Boko Haram militants invaded the town of Konduga killing over 40 residents.
A member of the official assessment team dispatched to the area following the incident, said Boko Haram burnt down several houses and a secondary school. The authorities were forced to close down that institution.
We further learnt that a military reinforcement has now reached Konduga and taken over the security situation in the area.
Our reporter gathered that the militant arrived in dozens at about 5:30 pm yesterday and launched multiple attacks on civilians as they chanted ‘Allahuakubar’ and other Islam-related words. They did their damage and left with no resistance from the security agencies. Borno State is under emergency rule.
Another source who asked for anonymity said he personally counted over 45 corpses. SaharaReporters was unable to confirm that claim from Col. Mohammed Dole, spokesman of the 7th Division of the Nigerian Army in Maiduguri.
