Borno has seen their fare share of the Boko Haram attacks as that has been the punching bag of the insurgents since their inception. And in the same fashion, they have attacked three villages in Gwoza Local Government Area, totally razing them in what could be termed a retaliatory strike by the terrorists. It was reported that the islamic sect came back in full force to attack the community following Sunday’s incident.
According to sources, the three villages that were razed are Attagara, Amuda and Ngoshe, leaving five worshippers and 37 members of the sect dead in a clash between the insurgents and the residents.
The terrorists had earlier destroyed major parts of Ngoshe last week and its residents had already fled to the hilltops.
The source also said it was during the attack on Ngoshe that the terrorists were repelled when a Nigerian Air Force jet started dropping bombs on them, forcing them to flee into the bush.
