No fewer than 28 people were reportedly slaughtered by terror group, Boko Haram in separate attacks on two remote villages in Borno State.

The terrorists reportedly stormed Mafurnudi in Damboa Local Government Area of the state, butchering at least 24 people and injured eight others in the early hours of Tuesday, August 26.

According to SaharaReporters, a local vigilante, Abubakar Jojo, confirmed the attack on Mafurnudi village, near Damboa town, explaining that due to unavailability of telecommunications in Damboa, they were forced to travel to Biu to inform authorities.

''They attacked our people in Mafurnudi village on Tuesday but we learned about it today because there are no telecommunications in Damboa area. Twenty-four men and eight others suffered gun wounds. They carted away all their foodstuffs and set their homes ablaze,'' Jojo said.

Similarly, the sect also attacked Kafa in Damboa, another remote village, on Wednesday, August 27, killing four people.

A resident of the village, Kaka Sadiq, confirmed the attack - ‎''[Boko Haram] attacked fishermen at Kafa village yesterday [killing] four people then throwing them into the river,” he said.

The remote villages of Mafurnudi and Kafa are within eight kilometers of Damboa town, which is about 100 kilometers away from the Borno State capital, Maiduguri
