Over 50 Killed, As Boko Haram Gunmen Invade Villages in Kaduna and Borno State
Hundreds of Boko Haram gunmen in the early hours of today invaded Fadan Karshi village in Sanga local government area of Kaduna state where they killed at least five persons and others wounded. The figure was however a child’s play to a similar attack on Damboa in Borno state where insurgents killed over 50 residents and razed their homes unresisted.
Just last month, Fadan Karshi was among seven communities in Sanga council area that came under attack from gunmen who killed about 200 people. Chairman of the local government, Emmanuel Adamu, who confirmed the incident, described the latest attack as unfortunate.
“We are still confused about what is happening in our local government. Not up to a month that about 200 people were killed with over 27,000 people displaced, five people have now been killed this morning (today) with a lot of people displaced again,” Adamu said.
An eyewitness said the gunmen invaded the community in the early hours, moving from one house to another, shooting indiscriminately. “Many people ran out of that community during the previous attacks. Just few days ago, some of them returned only for this attack to take place again. The gunmen came with sophisticated weapons, shooting and chanting islamic citation. The other person that was injured is now receiving treatment at a hospital”, it was revealed.
In Borno state, Boko Haram insurgents attacked Damboa again barely two weeks after a daring attack on a military base in the town. This time, all the security agents have fled the town leaving residents at the mercy of the insurgents who survivors said left no less than 50 persons dead.
The insurgents were said to have stormed the town in the early hours of today, shooting and throwing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) in houses. “The attack was done with anger by Boko Haram because they appeared as if they came to finish the town completely. Many people were killed and several houses burnt,” a vigilante group in the town told journalists on phone.
