Many Feared Dead As Boko Haram Terrorists Attack Borno Community
Boko Haram terrorists stormed a remote community in Borno State on Saturday night and opened fire upon the villagers, a vigilante source told SaharaReporters on Sunday.
According to the source, dozens of terrorists invaded Amarwa in Konduga local government area late at night and began looting homes and shooting residents. They proceeded to burn down the homes they looted.
The source, a member of the local vigilante group, told our correspondent that villagers alerted the Nigerian Army in Konduga, but by the time the soldiers responded, the terrorists had already wreaked havoc in the community.
“Many people were killed and the whole village was razed down completely after they looted our food items,” the vigilante said.
“We sighted them afar so we tried our best to stop them by engaging them, but they were better equipped.”
At the time of publication, the number of casualties remained unknown.
