PRETORIA, September 20. (Itar-Tass). – Militants of the Boko Haram Islamite group disguised in military outer killed 87 people and burned down dozens of homes in Borno State, north-eastern Nigeria.
The militants shot at everyone who was trying to hide. “We found 87 corpses and continue searching,” representative of local authorities Saidu Yakubu told journalists on Friday at the site of the tragedy that came there along with the state’s governor Kasim Shettima.
Yakubu said that the massacre occurred on Wednesday, when the Nigerian army announced about a military operation held in Borno that claimed lives of 150 militants and 16 soldiers. The strike was delivered on the reinforced base of Boko Haram, where heavy armament was stored.
Earlier, according to local media reports, in an ambush made by militants over 40 soldiers of the governmental army were killed.
