42 Killed In Fresh Attacks In Borno

An attack in Gamboru Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State yesterday, by suspected members of Islamist sect Boko Haram has reportedly claimed about 42 lives.

The latest attack occurred in the villages of Kanari, Wazarde and Gula along Nigeria’s border with Cameroon.

According to reports, yesterday’s attack in Gamboru Ngala LGA occurred after gunmen arrived the three border villages at about 3a.m in trucks with assault rifles, improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and petrol bombs.

Sources told Vanguard that the gunmen shot sporadically at fleeing residents, killing the victims.

“The shooting went on for about seven hours. The gunmen had a field day and operated unchallenged as they did not leave until about 9.30 am on Saturday,” one of the sources said.

The villages have been reportedly deserted as survivors took refuge in Ngala town and neighbouring Cameroon villages.

Borno State Commissioner of Police, Mr Lawal Tanko, told Vanguard when contacted, that he was not aware of the attack.

However, a top security source, who declined to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media, confirmed the attack.

According to him, two of the attacked villages were razed by the invaders.

  1. Hm i can boldly report that what ever dat is happening in our country today is being caused by our leaders, th minister for deffence, the top government officials nd some other people holding political power… They’re responsinle for what is happening in this country. How can this kind of thing happen in a locality without d knowledge of the minister for deffence meanwhile the shootout occured between the assasins and our deffence member? He should be blame for being incompetence of his function… If things are not done at immidiate, i suppose this country will be history in some years to come… Our political elites, our deffence ministers, our leaders you all should better stop all these attrocities that you all have engaged yourself into because above is the vindication to come nd worst is the wrath to befall you all……. On behalf of this country Nigeria, i speak to you all…. Soo be warn
