Nigeria: Boko Haram Crushes Nigerian Soldiers And Civilians In Recent Raid In Borno


Boko Haram fighters raided a remote town in Borno state leaving 7 people dead last week Friday at the wee hours of the day, according to the Punch.
The insurgents stormed the locality on motorcycles fully armed to the teeth as they ravaged the town of Rann in Kalabalge district viciously.
A highly disturbed resident named Abba Abiso who gave an account of the bloody incident has this to say;

“They opened fire on homes as we slept and killed seven people before carting away our food supplies and drugs from the only clinic in the town,”
The Nigerian army confirmed the attack in a statement on Saturday, saying it lost two soldiers while 16 Boko Haram Islamists were killed.

“The troops killed seven of the attackers instantly while quite a number escaped with gunshot wounds,” the army said.

“During clearance operations this morning, the troops discovered nine more Boko Haram terrorists dead bodies in the surrounding areas. Therefore the total number of terrorists killed was 16,” it added.

Residents had fled into Cameroon and the town of Gamboru, 28 kilometres (17 miles) away.

Another witness Ari Ngamsu added: “The Boko Haram gunmen planted two high calibre explosives on the way outside the town but soldiers from Gamboru succeeded in defusing them at daybreak.”

Both witnesses spoke on Cameroonian phone lines, the only means of communication available following the destruction of telecom masts by Boko Haram in previous attacks.
