Boko Haram Attacks Borno State, Kills Three, and Injures Several Others

At least three individuals have been killed by Boko Haram in the latest attack on the Njilang community, in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.

An undisclosed source had told Channels Television that the insurgents struck at the recently reopened Maiduguri-Damboa Road in the wee hours of Tuesday, October 4.

The insurgents had used Improvised Explosive Devices -IEDs, on the dilapidated road as a truck was passing by, transporting foodstuffs. The IEDs had set several houses on fire, injuring several people in the location. 

According to the source; 

“The insurgents invaded Njilang at about 2:34 am early Tuesday and opened fire, sporadically shooting at fleeing residents, killing three people in the process, and looting shops before setting several residential houses on fire without confrontation. The insurgents targeted some trucks conveying foodstuffs and off-loaders, which they used to succeed in their mission.”

“I am aware of the incident in Njilang because it is in my local government and it is unfortunate that Chibok is notorious for the wrong reasons. The other incident of IED is not in Chibok, I only heard of it when people contacted me.”
