This cannot keep going on!
The Islamic sect known as Boko Haram struck again in Borno state killing about 33 persons yesterday.
Residents report that the men came into Mafa town using Hilux Toyota vans armed with AK47 rifles, Improvised Explosive Devices ( IEDâ€™s ), Rocket Propelled Launchers, petrol bombs and opened fire on residents who were asleep, which led to at least 33 people being killed, with several injured, and property worth millions of Naira destroyed. The gunmen are reported to have had a field day in Mafa having overpowered the military personnel stationed in the Village.
The Borno state Police Commissioner, Lawal Tanko, has confirmed the incident but says he has no exact number of casualties.
We have lost more than 200 lives in the deadly siege the sect men have laid in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states for the past one week.
