Islamic Terrorists Murder 15 in Nigeria


Islamic Terrorists Slaughter 15 in Nigeria

The Daily Caller News Foundation

At least 15 civilians were killed late Wednesday night in Nigeria after a suspected Boko Haram attack on several villages and one refugee camp near the city of Maiduguri in the country’s northeast.

According to a report from Reuters, the attackers used small arms and rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) during the attack, and some of the victims were found burned inside their homes.

“The terrorists attacked and completely burned Bulaburin and Kofa villages and burnt half the Dalori 2 IDP (internally displaced persons) camp,” said Babakura Kolo, a civilian militia commander, according to a report from Al Jazeera. “They killed nine people in Bulaburin, two people in Dalori, and one in Kofa and looted food supplies before setting them on fire.”

Witnesses told reporters that the killings were “indiscriminate,” and that the attackers “gunned down civilians” before looting the villages for food. Civilian militias and the Nigeria Army responded and eventually drove the attackers off.
