Boko Haram Attacks Village, Kills People, Burns Entire Village On Christmas

Post by emmy on Sun 27 Dec 2015 - 13:57

At least 14 people were killed and several others injured by
Boko Haram gunmen in a Christmas Day attack on a
village in northeastern Nigeria, vigilantes said Saturday.
Attacking astride bicycles, the jihadists invaded Kimba
village in flashpoint Borno state around 10 pm on Friday,
opening fire on residents and torching their homes.

"The gunmen killed 14 people and burnt the whole
village before they fled," Mustapha Karimbe, a
civilian assisting the military in fighting Boko
Haram, told AFP.

"Not a single house was spared in the arson,"
another vigilante, Musa Suleiman, said after visiting
the razed village.
Hundreds of Kimba residents fled to Biu nearby, where they
were put up in a refugee camp already brimming with
people running from Boko Haram.


The attack comes just days before Nigerian President
Muhammadu Buhari's self-imposed deadline to stamp out
the group expires on December 31, and in the same week
that he said Nigeria has "technically" defeated the
jihadists.
