Boko-HaramGunmen, suspected to be Boko Haram members, on Thursday, stormed a remote village near Askira Uba, Borno State, killing at least 20 people.

Narrating their tale of survival, some lucky escapees said the insurgents invaded Dile village at 2 a.m. in several vehicles, burning houses and killing anybody in ​sight.

Ibrahim Usman, a resident, who fled to Mubi in Adamawa State, said 20 persons were feared killed in the village and many others sustained injuries during the attack.

“Dozens of Boko Haram fighters attacked our village ‎at about 2 a.m. and killed 20 people”, Mr. Usman said. “Many of us fled to the bush to avoid being killed. Everybody was running for his life. We don’t know the whereabouts of our family members”.

He called on the military authorities to deploy troops to the area to ‎check the activities of the insurgents.

Corroborating the account narrated by Mr. Usman, another fleeing resident, Gambo Abakura, said “They just started burning houses and shooting at sight.

“Most of the insurgents had turbaned their heads; others in quasi-military uniform, chanting Allahu Akbar, meaning Allah is Great”, he said.

PREMIUM TIMES attempt to speak to military authorities in Yola, the Adamawa State capital was not successful but a security source confirmed the attack.

“Yes, there was an attack because many residents had fled to Mubi and they told us the insurgents have several camps in the bush around the area from where they wreak havoc on villages”, said a local vigilante in Askira, Mallam Baba.
