Boko Haram kills one, sets Borno village ablaze

   …steals livestock, food items


Some suspected members of Boko Haram have attacked and set ablaze Mammanti village in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State. In the Wednesday attack, the invaders killed one person, injured many others and stole livestock and food stuffs. Mammanti village is less than five kilometres to Maiduguri, the state capital.

A resident of the area, Abubakar Mammanti, who fled the village, told our correspondent in Maiduguri that several Boko Haram members invaded the community and start shooting sporadically. According to him, the invaders set many houses ablaze. He said: “The insurgents, who came about 9a.m. on Wednesday, stated shooting sporadically and set over 30 houses ablaze.

They killed one person, injured several others and carted away livestock and food items. “Many people fled the village and slept in the bush. As I am speaking with you, some are still missing in the bush, because some of our people have returned.” Mammanti called on President Muhammadu Buhari and the Chief of Army Staff. Lt. Gen. Tukur Buratai, to do something fast and save the people’s lives. According to him, the insurgents are gradually trying to occupy the villages and if possible attack Maiduguri.

The attack came a few days after the insurgents attacked Bale village, about seven kilometres from Giwa Barracks, Maiduguri, where one person was also killed and over 300 cows were stolen. At press time, the state Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO), DSP Edeet Ikon, could not be reached, as his mobile line was switched off.
