MAIDUGURI – Suspected Boko Haram members launched attacks on troubled Borno villages and on highways, killing more than 30 people including residents, motorists and commuters.
The sect, in the latest attacks, Thursday evening and Friday morning, invaded three towns – Dikwa (in the central), Gwoza and Kalabalge council area and on Maiduguri-Biu road.
In the attack on Government Secondary school in Dikwa located along Gulumba road, some residents of the town who fled to Maiduguri revealed to journalists that the hoodlums came to the town in the middle of the night and slaughtered eight teachers.
One of them who spoke on condition of anonymity said: “We could not sleep at night as all we were hearing was gunshots as we fled to Maiduguri.”
“Our fear was heightened by the fact that we heard that they attacked a boarding school and had killed eight teachers.”
