Islamist terrorist group, Boko Haram, allegedly burnt down Wasada community in Askira/Uba Local Government Area in southern Borno State, killed two villagers and scores wounded, a vigilante source said.
The terrorists, who stormed the village on motorcycles at about 2pm, shot with abandon, killing at least two civilians, SaharaReporters reported.
According to the source, the whole village was burnt down, with many civilians still missing. Livestock and food items, he added, were carted away by the terrorists.
“We received distress calls from our members in Wasada village, some of 30 kilometers from Uba that they were under siege. We went there but nothing was left, as the village had been razed. We found two corpses lying on ground and many villagers with gunshot wounds,” he said.
“I can tell you that many are still missing. Our men are on patrol, as we speak, in the hope that they could rescue more villagers.”
The army is yet to react to the latest attacks.
There have been renewed attacks since the government claimed to have negotiated the release of 21 abducted Chibok school girls and release of some Boko Haram commanders which multiple sources point to.
