Military sources have confirmed that over 50 persons were killed by scores of Boko haram terrorists that attacked Dalori, a village about 5 kilometers from the Borno State capital of Maiduguri.
According to our sources, the Islamist militants were armed with AK 47 rifles and “other sophisticated weapons” and terrorised the village in an operation lasted over three hours. According to Vanguard, the terrorists arrived the village in hilux vans dressed in camouflage, so villagers mistook them for Nigerian troops.
This attack comes weeks after President Muhammadu Buhari declared victory of the terrorist group which has been named the world’s deadliest killing over 20,000 in a campaign it has waged against the Nigerian state since 2009 in a bid to declare Nigeria an Islamic republic.
The Trent reported an attack on Saturday night by Boko Haram terrorists in the village of Dalori about 5 kilometers from Maiduguri. The Islamist militants were using explosives and guns began looting and burning down homes for an hour before Nigerian troops engaged them in a fierce gun battle.
Eye-witness accounts say that the village was burnt down by the terrorists who have been waging a deadly campaign to make Nigeria an Islamic country. An AFP report confirms that the village was burnt down by the terrorists.
“During the incident lives were lost while some people sustained injuries,” Colonel Mustapha Anka, a Nigerian Army spokesman said in a statement.
Residents maintain that over 100 people were killed in the attacks. A local journalist who spoke to The Trent by telephone said that the body count is “high”.
Bodies of the victims have been deposited at the Borno State Specialist Hospital and the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital, both in Maiduguri.
“Several others whose numbers were estimated at 70 who received gunshot, machete injuries, etc, were also evacuated to the two hospitals,” a source said.
