Boko Haram Kill 69 in Borno

Not less than 69 persoms have been allegedly killed and many others injured, after gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram terrorists attacked Faduma Koloram under Gubio Local Government Area of Borno State on Tuesday.

A source told newsmen that the insurgents arrived in three vehicles and motorcycles, shooting sporadically, burning houses and stealing unspecified number of cattle and camels.

The source said the insurgents accused the people of the town of spying on them and vowed to teach them a lesson.

According to him, about 69-70 corpses have so far been recovered.

“The insurgents burnt around 250 homes and looted goods. They said the act was to punish residents whom they alleged were providing information on their movement to security agencies.

“Therefore, freeing the zone with presence of civilian would provide them the ease of access to attack the military formation at Gubio and others without being noticed,” he told newsmen.
