Boko Haram terrorists have killed 12 people in Damasak, Borno State, emerging reports say.

The terrorists are said to have attacked the town at about 4:30am on Tuesday, July 14, 2015, according to Reuters.

"They came in Hilux vehicles (pick-up trucks) and motorcycles, set fire to all the houses but all the residents have fled the town since last weekend when troops from the Multi-National Joint Task Force (MNJTF) were withdrawing to Niger," a local vigilante leader, who chose to remain anonymous, said.

"Boko Haram also burnt down all the houses, cars and other vehicles including two trailers," a bus driver, Bukar Aji also said confirming the incident.

The terrorists were earlier reported to have killed 25 people after an attack on Mainok village in the Konduga Local Government area of Borno.
