No fewer than 29 persons were killed in two Borno villages when suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked the villages on Monday.

In the deadlier of the two attacks, the terrorist group attacked Ngamgam in Mobbar Local Government of Borno State and killed 20 farmers.

Ngamgam is about 50 kilometres, east of Damasak, the secretariat of Mobbar, which is a border town between Nigeria and Niger Republic, another country in the Lake Chad Basin troubled by Boko Haram and its sister organisation, Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP).

A security source told THISDAY that: “We have an information that reveals that on 25 June, 2019, suspected members of the deadly terrorist group attacked Ngamgam settlement about 50 kilometres east of Damasak and killed 20 farmers in their farms.”

The source said the killing led to mass exodus of people from the village into Damasak.

In the second attack on Monday, the insurgents were alleged to have attacked a village in Guzamala Local Government Area of the troubled state, the birthplace of Boko Haram, killing nine persons and carting away food stuffs and livestock.

A chieftain of the Civilian Joint Task Force in Borno State, Abba-Aji Kalli, confirmed the attack. (THISDAY)
