Metro Gwoza Under Siege: Boko Haram Kills 300, Wipes Out 3 Villages - Leadership


No fewer than 300 villagers were reportedly killed in three communities around #Gwoza local government area of #Borno State on Monday as gunmen suspected to be #BokoHaram but fully kitted in military fatigue uniform attacked them, eyewitnesses and security operatives said.

A few villagers in Danjara, Agapalwa and Antagara who managed to escape the attack are currently taking refuge in the rocky Gwoza hills, while others mostly women and children who were spared by the attackers have found their way into Cameroonian territory.

A state lawmaker representing the region, Peter Biye, told the Hausa Service of the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) that “they (Boko Haram) opened fire on villagers and burned houses and churches to the ground”. Dozens of people were killed in each attack, he said, but he could not give precise figures.
