Metro Gunmen in uniform kill scores in Borno- The Nation



NO fewer than 100 people were killed in Tuesday’s attacks on some Borno State villages, witnesses and residents said yesterday.

The attackers wore military uniform pretending to be on rescue mission. They caught the people unaware, and shot many dead.

The clashes were in Attagara, Aghapalwa and Gwoshe communities in Gwoza Local Government Council.
The attackers, some disguised in military uniforms, raided the villages yesterday (Tuesday), using “sophisticated weapons” and “started killing from house to house,” Abba Aji Khalil, chairman of a local vigilante group set up to combat the militants, said on telephone. Yuguda Ndurvua, a local clergyman, said many villages in the area “are being attacked almost on a daily basis.”
