Scores of people have been reportedly killed byBoko Haram terrorists in a fresh attack on Friday, July 3, following Wednesday massacres of no fewer than 142 persons in Borno state.
The militants had invaded mosques and homes on Wednesday, shooting people dead at sight and butchering others.
Up to 50 armed men on motorbikes were said to have invaded the Mussa village in the Friday attacks, shooting villagers and burning their homes, survivor Bitrus Dangana told AFP.
“They killed six people in the village and they chased the inhabitants into the bush, firing at them… 25 people were killed in the bush,” he said.
Another survivor, Adamu Bulus, confirmed 31 people were murdered.
It was the fourth time that Boko Haram had attacked the village in the past year.
