Boko Haram fresh attack using horseback in Borno, kill 26

At least 26 people were killed and several others injured as terrorists invaded remote villages of Kolori and Ba’ana of Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State on Monday.
Damboa is located at the heart of the Sambisa Forest and about 85 kilometres drive from Maiduguri, the state capital that had witnessed series of deadly attacks in recent past.
“The insurgents, Monday, rode on horses to remote Kolori and Ba’ana Imam village in Damboa Local Government Area, where they opened fire on villagers, killing no fewer than 26 people,” sources told Vanguard.
One of the leaders of the youth vigilante group in Biu told journalists, on condition of anonymity, that many of the villagers fled to Biu on, Tuesday, a day after the attack. According to him, the insurgents reportedly carted away foodstuffs and livestock.
The attack is coming at a time military authorities claimed it had destroyed all camps of insurgents in the North-East area of operations.
Just last Friday, insurgents on horses wreaked havoc in two communities in Nganzai Local Government Area of the state, leaving over 60 people dead.
Neither Police nor military authorities have confirmed the attack.
