Seven people have been reportedly killed in fresh bomb attacks in Bam and Gajigana villages of Biu and Magumeri Local Government Areas of Borno State.

According to Vanguard Newspapers, a number of teenage girls were abducted in Bam Village, and a lot of properties were damaged.

An eyewitness-Mallam Ali Bam who spoke to Vanguard said “The Boko Haram terrorists after separating a lot of teenage girls from married women in Bam, set ablaze the whole village and fled with the girls unchallenged, as the attack lasted for some hours before they fled.

"I called on General Buratai to do something as we have been telling the soldiers that the Boko Haram were so close to the village, but they only went to Mangari village which is few kilometers away from Buratai and shot into the air and left. The soldiers don’t want to confront the terrorists, Buratai should better do something before they start attacking and sacking villages, as they were doing before," the eyewitness said.

In Gajiganna village also, the terrorists killed people and destroyed properties.

Mallam Aliyu Jibrin, a member of the Civilian JTF in the village said “I believe it was a revenge mission, because recently, we arrested over 17 Boko Haram insurgents in the community and handed them over to the military. I am calling on the Federal government and the military authorities to do something about the pockets of insurgents in the bushes and villagers before they regroup and start attacking big towns and villages.”

Boko Haram was recently named the most deadly terror group in the world, with a record 6,644 deaths attributed to it, while its big brother, ISIS was credited for killing only 6,073 people.
