Hours after two massive explosions killed 51 people in the Ngomari area of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, the Boko Haram sect again went on rampage killing no fewer than 39 people in a rifle attack on Mainok, a village about 30 miles west of Maiduguri.
The attackers who were armed with rifles and grenade launchers arrived around midnight and after the shooting, the terrorists set the village ablaze.
An eyewitness disclosed that “they have AK 47, RPG launchers and so on. They just started shooting and burning every house in the village.They can kill anybody, including women and children. They kill anybody that can see them.”
Incidentally, with the state of emergency in Borno State, there is military presence around the state. The military claimed to have killed 13 terrorists in a raid last week while the Boko Haram sect seems undeterred and continues to unleash mayhem on the citizens.
