40 people killed as Boko Haram strike Borno again


A fresh orgy of killing swept through Borno State on Tuesday as the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, attacked Jakana village and reportedly killed about 40 persons.

Jakana, which is about 35 kilometres from Maiduguri, the state capital, shares a common border with Mainok, where 39 persons were killed by the terrorists on Saturday.

The insurgents had on Sunday night attacked Mafa in the violence-ravaged state, killing no fewer than 35 persons.

The violent group was said to have distributed fliers, informing Mafa residents of their impending attack before hitting the town around 9pm on Sunday.
