Boko Haram siege kills 45 in Borno village
Abuja - At least 45 people have reportedly been
killed after suspected members of the outlawed
Boko Haram sect attacked Dille village in Borno
The terrorists are said to have attacked several
houses and shops in the village driving some
villagers flee into nearby hills for safety.
According to some villagers, the terrorists came in
a convoy of more than 20 four-wheel drive cars
One of the villagers who spoke to journalists in
Maiduguri, said the alleged terrorists, on arriving
the village, started shooting sporadically and
indiscriminately at everyone in sight.
“Some of us had to flee into the nearby hills for
safety, because the insurgents do not spare any
person in their attacks and killings in the last
three or four months," he said.
"Monday’s attacks and killings bring to five other
villages being attacked by Boko Haram gunmen,
without being arrested by the military or police
He lamented that among the people killed by the
insurgents were those they considered as
informants to the military.
“We were caught unawares by the gunmen’s
dawn attacks, because most of us were asleep by
then; when we started to hear people chanting
God is great in Arabic; and their gunshots we
were awe stricken.
They also burnt down our houses and locked up
shops with petrol bombs.”
A vigilante in the village, Amos Yohanna, also
revealed to journalists that more people were
coming down from the hills, while those that fled
into nearby bushes, were converging at the
market square, before fleeing to Lassa about 20
kilometers away for safety because the insurgents
may attack again.
