Maiduguri: Boko Haram gunmen have killed at least 69 people and razed a village to the ground in northern Nigeria’s Borno state, three sources have said.
The men attacked the village of Faduma Koloram, in Gubio local government area in the state, starting about noon on Tuesday, local time.
They arrived in vehicles and on motorcycles, shooting with AK-47s, razing the village and stealing 1200 cattle and camels. A resident, a Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) member and a soldier each confirmed the same account.
They said the men attacked because they suspected residents of sharing information on the terror group’s movements with security authorities.
