Boko Haram Attacks kill 12 in Borno Villages
At least 12 civilians were feared killed in multiple Boko Haram jihadist attacks targeting two villages and a camp for those displaced by the bloody conflict in northeastern Nigeria. The Jihadists in seven trucks late on Wednesday attacked Bulaburin and Kofa villages as well as a camp in Dalori village outside the Borno state capital of Maiduguri. They completely burnt Bulaburin and Kofa villages and burnt half the Dalori two IDP (Internally Displaced Persons) camp.
The attack was launched in Kofa where the jihadists opened fire indiscriminately and killed one person as residents fled, before moving to nearby Bulaburin where they gunned down nine people and burnt the village after ransacking. At Dalori 2 IDP camp, which houses 10,000 homeless people, the jihadists engaged troops and civilian militia guarding the camp in a shootout before overrunning the makeshift facility
