“As I am speaking with you, the village is burnt down and many animals dead, when people were running; the invaders said, “don’t run we have been warned not to kill you.”

He added: “I can’t tell you the casualties figure because we all ran to Molai. We are waiting for the military to go there now,” the source said.

The Boko Haram insurgents have been staging attacks on communities close to Maiduguri in recent times, burning down houses and carting away foodstuff and livestock.
