Boko Haram Kills Monarch, 37 Others In Borno Villages
Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists had, in the early hours of Sunday, attacked Kaigamari village in Konduga local government area of Borno State and killed seven people including the village head, security sources said.
This occurred as gunmen were attacking Ngoshe-Sama village in Gwoza local government area of the state, where they killed over 30 residents.
The gunmen who attacked Ngoshe-Sama village invaded the town at about 7pm and continued to operate up to the time of filing this report.
A serving council member of Gwoza local government who craved anonymity said, “The whole of Ngoshe-Sama has been burnt down and the people have fled; over 30 people have been killed so far; they are still there as I am talking to you now.”
A senior security operative in Maiduguri, who spoke off the record, said the village head of Kaigamari, Bulama Kaigamari, was shot dead alongside six other villagers when the gunmen attacked about 2am.
“The gunmen went directly to the home of the village head, shot him dead and set his house ablaze, before attacking other villagers,” said the security operative who also confirmed that several other people received bullet injuries.
At Ngoshe village, a border community near Cameroon, sources said the attackers were armed with improvised explosive devices, AK 47 rifles and rocket-propelled launchers (RPGs).
Mallam Usman Jidda, a fleeing survivor from Ngoshe-Sama, said he managed to survive and made it to Gwoza town.
Sources at Konduga said some of the injured victims were being treated at the Konduga General Hospital while the deceased were buried at noon yesterday.
