Just in case you were thinking Boko Haram was taking a break…it’s not.
Militants wearing army uniforms have killed 19 people at checkpoints on a road in Nigeria’s Borno state.
The armed men reportedly stopped motorists on the road and ordered them out of their cars before shooting them or hacking them to death.
The latest attack happened early on Sunday morning near the town of Logumani, not far from the Cameroon border.
Survivors said the gunmen were dressed as soldiers and were riding motorcycles before they ambushed their victims.
“We were asked to get out of our vehicles and lie face down by nine men dressed as soldiers who blocked the road,” one man, who gave his name as Buba, told the AFP news agency.
“They shot dead five people and went about slaughtering 14 others before someone called them on the phone that soldiers were heading their way,” he said.
God is great.
