A village in the southern part of Borno State, Ndagu Village, Askira-Uba local government area has suffered a fresh attack after fleeing Boko Haram insurgents stormed the area in large numbers setting the entire village ablaze.
According to a source, at least three people lost their lives while several women were abducted in the attack that took place at about 7:30 pm on Sunday.
The area has been one of the least hit of waves of attack from the terrorist groups in the state but suffered several attacks in 2016.
The villagers are now at the mercy of the insurgents because of inadequate security for people in the area, a resident of the village identified as Ibrahim Askira said.
He added that, “As I speak with you now, many people who fled to the bush have not returned. We are not sure what has happened to them. They took away many women that we are not yet sure of the number.
“The people in this village are completely traumatized due to this attack. We cannot be sure of our next sleep, I call on the security to be more proactive in dealing with these Boko Haram boys. If the security agents leave us like this, they will finish us,” a local hunter, Aminu, added.
