Terrorists massacred innocent civilians today, Saturday, in Borno State, northeastern Nigeria, sources said.
The victims, nine men and a woman, were collecting scrap from burnt-out cars in the village of Goni Kurmi near the town of Bama when they were attacked by ISIS-linked elements.
“All the ten were shot dead,” said Babakura Kolo, a leader of the local forces. “The victims were in the village looking for scrap when they collided with the terrorists.”
The civilian force found the bodies and transferred them to “Bama,” according to Ibrahim Liman, a member of the forces in the area, who confirmed the death toll.
Recently, terrorists targeted civilians who collect scrap after they were accused of spying for the army.
The terrorist organization ISIS, which split from the terrorist group Boko Haram in 2016, has become the main threat in northeastern Nigeria.
The militants of the extremist organization also attacked, late Friday, the town of “Monguno”, killing three men from the local forces and kidnapping three civilians, according to security sources and aid workers.
Acts of terrorism have killed more than 40,000 people and displaced nearly two million in the northeast of the country since 2009, according to the United Nations.
