Nigeria’s Army arrived on the scene after Boko Haram’s atrocities
West Africa —Boko Haram’s extremists have attacked several villages in the past week, killing 27 people, according to residents in Nigeria’s northern Borno state.
A member of a self-defense group with the Nganzai local council, Modu Jialta, said the Islamic extremists arrived in villages on Wednesday, killing at least 15 people by slitting their throats and shooting them. “The bodies were buried on Friday,” he said.
Mai Abatcha Monguno, commander of the Guzamala local council’s self-defense forces, told journalists that 12 other people were killed in attacks on villages in the same area.
Deadly attacks by the Nigeria-based terrorist’s sect have also been carried out in neighboring countries.
In most northern states in Nigeria, local defense forces are requesting additional assistance from the Nigerian government and the international community to battle Boko Haram’s insurgency, which has displaced millions of Nigerians and killed more than 25,000 people.
