Nigeria unrest: Deadly attack on village in Borno state

 

Suspected Islamist militants have stormed a village in north-east Nigeria, killing several people.

Reports on the death toll in Mailari, Borno state, differed. A local militia leader said six people had died but a survivor said up to 19 were killed.

The militants ransacked and looted the village for two hours before leaving, witnesses added.

The Boko Haram jihadist group has carried out numerous attacks in Borno state.

Militia leader Babakura Kolo told AFP news agency that the militants had arrived in trucks late on Saturday, firing guns and rocket-propelled grenades.

“In the confusion, the Boko Haram gunmen seized six men and slaughtered them,” Babakura Kolo said.

“The bodies of the six victims were found this morning (Sunday) when residents returned to the burned village.” Read more
