Boko Haram Insurgents Kill 20, Injure 10 in Borno
No fewer than 20 persons were killed yesterday, while 10 others were injured when gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram insurgency group launched an attack on Logomani village in Dikwa Local Government Area of Borno State.
Dikwa is about 65 kilometres away from Maiduguri, where series of terrorists’ attacks and killings had occurred in recent times. Soldiers were said to have later pursued the insurgents into the forest around Ngamboru Ngala.
Bukar Alhaji Gana, a native of Logomani, said that about a week before the attack, there was a rumour that some members of the sect were seen heading towards Marte area, where a terrorist camp was located before it was destroyed by the Joint Task Force, JTF.
He said: “We were told that some of the Boko Haram sect members came around and warned some people, but left almost immediately towards Marte, close to Lake Chad Basin.”
