Boko Haram members attack Borno community, slit throat of village head





Members of the Boko Haram in the early hours of Monday reportedly invaded some sleeping villagers where they slit the throats of the village head and his son.

There was a reported pandemonium in a local community in the early hours of Monday, after some members of the Boko Haram terrorist sect, crept upon sleeping villagers of Talari, slit the throats of the village head and his son, and also shot dead two other villagers as they were trying to escape.

Confirming the incident exclusively to Premium Times, an official of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria in Borno state, Abbas Gava, said; “The gunmen invaded the village in the early hours of Monday and they stormed the home of the village head, Ba’ Lawan, where they slaughtered him and his son.

“After killing the village head and his son, they burnt his home down and as the villagers began to run for their lives, the gunmen opened fire on them killing two persons, while many of them escaped with injuries,” he said.

Talari is an agrarian community in Damboa Local government, is located between Kilakia Village and Chibok.

It has been revealed that Boko Haram insurgents have increased hostilities against villagers in remote communities especially around Damboa and Chibok local government areas of Borno State, which share boundaries with Sambisa forest.

Many of such attacks are unreported due to the remote and isolated nature of the communities, which are usually not protected by security operatives
