Boko Haram kills 2, Burns Villages After Looting Food Supplies
Boko Haram jihadists on Sunday razed three villages in northeast Nigeria in attacks that killed two people and injured several others. The jihadists arrived in trucks to attack Dala-Melari, Fuguri and Femari villages, six kilometres (3.8 miles) outside Borno state capital Maiduguri. The terrorists allegedly fired indiscriminately and forced residents to flee.
There are reports that the attack was perpetrated by fighters loyal to Boko Haram factional leader Abubakar Shekau. The terrorist invaded the community at about 10.00 pm, and completely burnt the villages after looting food supplies. The attacks came hours after the jihadists hacked to death a dozen farmers working on their fields in Kalla village, five kilometres away.
