Premium Times quoted a top official of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria in Borno State, Abbas Gava, as saying that Dasa and Duwabayi communities, in Monguno Local Government Area, were attacked by the terrorists between Monday and Tuesday.

Gaya said: “We received the sad information from our colleagues operating in Monguno who said on Monday that gunmen attacked Dasa, a village about 3km away from Monguno during which they killed nine persons”.

“On Tuesday night, again, the gunmen went to attack Duwabayi, another village not far away from Dasa, where they killed 13 persons – making it a total of 22 dead casualties. The gunmen who stormed the villages in large numbers ensured that they burnt down every building in the two villages”.

Gava, who doubles as the spokesman of the local vigilante group in the state, added that members of his vigilante group on Wednesday in Monguno arrested one of the notorious amirs – commander – of Boko Haram whom they reportedly handed over to the soldiers in Monguno.
