Boko Haram Claim 2 More Lives in Fight With Northeast Nigeria

ICC Note

Two more people have been killed in Adamawa State, Nigeria by Boko Haram. Despite claims by the Nigerian government that the terrorist organization has been defeated, they continue to wreak havoc on Nigerians in the Northeast of the country. They often raid villages in order to steal items that they need, and in the process they kill, maim and destroy the villagers and their property. We pray that the Nigerian government is able to find a way to stop these radicals and their terrible cause.

 

2017-12-03 Nigeria (News24) Two people were killed when Boko Haram fighters attacked a remote village in the latest attack in Adamawa state, northeast Nigeria, a local elder said on Thursday.

The attack happened in Wanu village, some three kilometres from the town of Gulak, at about 19:30 (1830 GMT) on Wednesday.

"They killed two people and injured one other. They went about burning homes, crops and livestock," said Maina Ularamu, a former head of the Madagali local government area.

Boko Haram has repeatedly targeted Madagali and the surrounding area in recent weeks as part of an increase in activity in Adamawa state.

Adamawa was declared "cleared" of the jihadists in late 2014 but there have still been raids and suicide attacks in the far north of the state, where it borders neighbouring Borno.

Ularamu said the attackers came on foot - an indication they did not intend to loot - via the Waga Chakawa forest, which leads to the Sambisa Forest in Borno.

Boko Haram fighters used the former national park as a base until it was driven out after a months-long military counter-insurgency.
