The dreaded Boko Haram terrorists on Saturday attacked Monguno town and Goni Sulemanti Village in Borno State.

Naija News reports that Boko Haram early on Saturday attacked Goni Sulemanti under Nganzai Local Government Area.

Residents in Goni disclosed to SaharaReporters that security agents were notified of the situation.

In another attack, Boko Haram terrorists invaded Monguno town around 1:15pm, shooting sporadically.

Monguno is around 100 km (62 miles) North-East of Maiduguri, Borno State.

The insurgents have made several repeated attempts to overrun the large military base located just outside Monguno town.

Naija News reports that over 81 people were killed by Boko Haram fighters in an attack on Tuesday.

A survivor of Tuesday’s attack told the Borno State Governor, Babagana Zulum, on Wednesday that the Boko Haram insurgents pretended to be Islamic religious crusaders, collected arms from herders and killed 81 persons.

The survivor said that apart from the 81 persons left dead, 13 were injured, while seven others were abducted in Tuesday’s attack.

He said, “The insurgents disguised as if they had come to enlighten the community, disarmed the herders and shot all of them, including the underaged, and even their animals. They abducted seven people.”
