Dozens dead as Boko Haram storm Borno town

boko-haramBoko Haram terrorists killed several people and destroyed dozens of homes in a raid on a town in Northeast Nigeria’s Borno state, local residents said.

Scores of Boko Haram terrorists in trucks and on motorcycles stormed the town of Gubio, 95 kilometers (60 miles) by road North of the state capital, Maiduguri, on Saturday night.

“Boko Haram invaded our town last night and killed many of our people and burnt more than half of the town,” resident Babor Kachalla, who fled to Maiduguri following the attack, said.

Boko Haram has been pushed out of captured towns and territory since February by Nigerian troops with assistance from Niger, Chad and Cameroon.

The six-year insurgency of the terrorist group has claimed at least 15,000 lives and made more than 1.5 million people homeless.
