Boko Haram Storms Borno Village, kills Two
Boko Haram fighters on Sunday evening, stormed a village in Borno State and killed two people.
The attack happened at Alau-Kofa village, some 12 kilometres from the Borno state capital, Maiduguri.
“Boko Haram came to our village last night at about 8:00 pm (1900 GMT) firing guns and RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades),” Bulama Bukar, who lives in Alau-Kofa, reportedly told AFP.
“Two people were burnt alive and the whole village was burnt, along with our food.”
Bukar, whose father was shot in the leg during the attack, said the jihadists “specifically came to steal our cattle” but were forced to abandon the herds when soldiers arrived.
“Last Wednesday they attacked the village, killed three people and took away 50 cattle. And now they came back,” he added.
