Boko Haram Kills Seven Villagers In Borno by PUSSYBBQGRILLS(f): 11:05am On Aug 07, 2018
Boko Haram jihadists have killed seven villagers in a dawn raid in Nigeria’ s restive northeast , local militia and a resident said Tuesday .

Gunmen in trucks and on motorcycles late Monday attacked Munduri , a village 13 kilometres ( eight miles) north of Borno state capital Maiduguri, firing guns and rocket- propelled grenades , according to resident Abdullahi Bunu.

“ The attackers seized seven people and beheaded them before setting fire to the entire village, ” militia leader Umar Ari told AFP by telephone from Maiduguri.

Those who were decapitated were the village chief and his wife , Bunu said .

“ We returned this morning and found the entire village burnt along with all our food supplies and livestock ” .

Boko Haram has intensified its armed campaign in recent weeks, including against military targets in which dozens of troops are believed to have been either killed or missing .

The rebels have split into two groups , and it was not immediately clear which was behind the latest attack .

A faction loyal to Abubakar Shekau is notorious for indiscriminate killings of civilians while the Abu Mus’ab Al-Barnawi faction — which is affiliated to the so -called Islamic State — largely focuses on attacking the military .

Five people were killed in a similar raid last week in Gasarwa village , near the garrison town of Monguno.

The attacks contrast with repeated claims by the military and the government that Boko Haram has been defeated and that it is safe for people displaced by Islamist violence to return home .

The jihadists’ nine -year campaign to establish a hardline Islamic state has killed an estimate 20 ,000 people and displaced over 2. 6 million from their homes.
