BREAKING: Massacre Continues As Boko Haram Attacks Another Borno Village, Many Casualties Reported
After yesterday's attack on Mafa, Borno state, reports coming in have revealed fresh attack by terrorist sect Boko Haram on Jakana Village in Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State, last night.
Sources state that the attack lasted till 3 a.m this morning, and described the events as horrendous as the residents ran away, while villagers from a neighbouring village of Auno had to flee Njimtilo, another village outside Maiduguri, after seeing the skies being lighted by burning fire from the direction of the attacked village.
A villager said:
Victims from the Jakana village reportedly said that the sect had warned them of an imminent attack, therefore many of the villagers had fled their homes a week ago. The warnings were allegedly handed down by Boko Haram members via leaflets dropped around the village.
The Borno Police Public Relations Officer, Gideon Jubrin, confirmed the incident to journalists but said there were no details yet.
The Monday night attack in Jakana occurs about 24 hours after at least 32 people were killed by the Boko Haram in Mafa Village.
