At least 44 people were slaughtered at Dumba village on the outskirts of Baga town, in Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno State, by gunmen on Tuesday night in what is believed to be a continuation of reprisal attacks since the death of Boko Haram leader, Abubakar Shekau became public.

According to sources, about 50 gunmen stormed Dumba village which is some kilometers away from Baga and slaughtered 44 people. Many people were also said to have been injured during the attack that lasted for hours.

It was learnt that the gunmen also set fire on some houses in the village.

Rescue workers have been mobilized to the area from Maiduguri with the aim of providing medical services to the surviving victims.

The assailants were said to have removed the two eyes of some of the victims while many others had their bodies decapitated.

A rescue worker told Journalists in Maiduguri that the village came under attack late Tuesday when some unknown gunmen stormed the settlement and killed many people when they were fast asleep.

“As I’m speaking to you now, Red cross officials and the San Medicine Frontier are attending to the injured victims,” a rescue worker with a federal government agency who does not want to be named said.

According to him, the village has been deserted, as the people are now taking refuge at the Baga central primary school.

A source with the National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) who confirmed the incident, said the agency has mobilized to the area to access the situation with a view to render humanitarian assistance to the injured victims and those who were psychologically traumatized in the attack.

According to him, the agency will on Saturday(today) set up camp at the Baga central primary school for the displaced victims.

  4. This is barbaric, satanic & unacceptable. As far as God & humanity are not happy with it, you will fail & regret your victimization of innocent people. God Bless Nigeria.

  5. Please, Nigerians need to know the truth as this seems to elude us right now; The Army claims they are defeating book haram and shekau says they are lying, infact, he goes all out to proff to Nigerians that he is alive and kicking especially by the rate of killings that happen practically on a daily basis. The Nigerian Army is doing a great job but I think they need to stop announcing their achievements and let Nigerians decide on who is winning the war. People are still being killed and we need to respect that fact, they are PEOPLE not ANIMALS.

  6. God, pls forgive us our sins and restore peace to our country Nigerian, touch d heart of dis wicked boko haram and let dem repent frm their evil ways. IJN Amen……
