ABUJA (Worthy News)– Boko Haram jihadists killed more than 100 residents as they hoisted their Islamic flag over the Nigerian town of Damboa. Reports are that nine other villages are on the run according to a Nigerian official.
Survivors told the Associated Press on Saturday that jihadists used rocket launchers and homemade bombs in their attack on Damboa town before dawn on Friday. Gunmen shot villagers as they tried to flee their burning homes.
A human rights advocate, speaking on condition of anonymity, told AP that gunmen attacked again on Friday as people were trying to bury the dead. The only defense came from vigilantes armed with clubs and homemade rifles. – Source
