Scores killed In Fresh Insurgents’ Attack On Gwoza Village, BornoFeatured, Latest News Thursday, August 7th, 2014
Not less than 100 residents of Gwoza village in Borno state, North Eastern Nigeria were on Wednesday feared killed by the suspected members of dreaded Boko Haram.
While the invasion lasted, many natives of the community fled to the neighbouring villages.
“Dozens of our people have been killed by the attackers, some were slaughtered and many others shot with guns,” a resident revealed to our source.
The Emir of the community was reportedly attacked by the insurgents in May this year, while his son and successor, Mohammad Idrissa Timta, were declared missing after the Wednesday invasion.

The defence headquarters and the Police Force are yet to make official statements on the latest attack, which came barely two weeks after series bomb blasts in Kano and Kaduna, North Western Nigeria.
