#BokoHaram: Boko Haram kills 37 women in Borno villages

Terror group, Boko Haram, has killed 37 people in separate attacks on six villages in Borno State, a youth vigilance member told journalists in Maiduguri on Thursday.

He revealed that the notorious group drove in a convoy of vehicles to Koshifa, Matangle, Buraltuma, Darmanti, Almeri and Burmari villages, all in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State, on Wednesday night.

The source said the insurgents opened fire indiscriminately on the villagers while setting houses on fire.

A top member of the youth vigilance group in Biu, a neighbouring local government area of Damboa, who also spoke on the condition of anonymity, said some of the villagers, who fled from the attack villages, narrated their ordeal.

He said those who escaped were mostly women, who alleged that the insurgents killed their husbands and burnt down their houses leaving them with nothing.

The women, the youth added, were equally afraid that the insurgents might come back to finish off the villages, forcing them to flee.

He said, “At least, 37 persons were killed in coordinated attacks on the six villages, and the victims were mostly men and youths and their homes razed down completely.

‎”The women said many people were still missing but they believed that they will still come to Damboa or Biu town so that they can reunite with their families. I must say Boko haram has almost wiped out this generation.”
