Terrorists kill several villagers in Borno in fresh attack

Boko Haram kill soldier, civilian, abduct 25 in Borno

Members of the Boko Haram sect have killed many villagers in Gudumbali town, Borno State.

According to a report by the New York Times, many people were feared dead after a fresh attack on the town on Friday, September 7, 2018.
The attack, according to the report, is coming barely two months after thousands of internally displaced people in camps were ordered back to Gudumbali town.
A witness told New York Times that the terrorists invaded the town situated in the Guzamala region of Borno state on Friday, wearing military uniforms.

The terrorists reportedly opened fire on Nigerian soldiers and residents, sending both the troops and the civilians fleeing.

Narrating the attack, the witness further said, "They came toward the town shooting sporadically.
"They were saying if you know you're an innocent person just leave the town, our target is not you, or if you wish to stay with us, it's no matter, you can stay with us."
The fresh attack on Gudumbali, which lies in territory where Islamic State in West Africa, ISWA has greater influence, might not be unconnected with the terrorists insistence on reclaiming grounds in the war with the Nigerian soldiers.
