Boko Haram Attacks Damboa Local Govt in Borno State, Destroys Entire Community
There seems to be no reprieve in sight for residents of northern Nigeria from the constant siege of the outlawed Boko Haram sect, as scores were killed and several others injured at the weekend Borno State, following attacks by the sect.
It was gathered from close security sources that Dalwa-Masuba, a village in Damboa Local Government Area of the state, was attacked in large numbers by the insurgents who also burnt down the entire community.
They also set ablaze three pickup vans carrying firewood from Damboa to Maiduguri, the state capital.
A member of the security vigilante (Abbas Gava), who spoke on the phone to journalists, said no security personnel had reached the attacked village at the time he was speaking.
“We heard about the attack from some of the villagers who fled the village, and we had to drive there in our patrol van; the entire village was set on fire, and about 40 person were found dead all over the place. Three firewood pickups were also set ablaze,” he said.
Attempts to confirm the attack yielded no result, as the spokesperson of the relevant security agencies could not be reached by telephone.
