2 Bomb attacks kill five in Borno
At least five people lost their lives on Friday when two bombs went off in some villages in Borno State. SaharaReporters, citing local vigilante sources, said the twin suicide attack caused devastating damages in the area.
The first bomb which went off in Kimba village in Biu Local Government Area of the state and killed two people, occurred around 8:30am, while the second attack which claimed three lives in Sabon Gari, exploded at 12 noon.
An unnamed member of a Civilian Joint Task Force operating in the area confirmed that, “a male detonated a bomb in Biu, killing an elderly man along with him.”
In the last one week, terrorists belonging to the Boko Haram sect have killed dozens of innocent civilians and ravaged communities in a desperate attempt to stamp their authority across the region in the face of growing military offensive by troops from Nigeria, Cameroun, Chad and Niger.
The group killed four people and abducted an unspecified number of teenage girls on November 29 from Bam village in Biu LGA; two days after a suicide bomber killed at least 20 members of a Shiite procession trekking from Kano to Zaria in Kaduna.
