Insurgents believed to be Boko Haram members attacked a village in Borno State at about 7:49am yesterday morning.
According to our source, the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) got a distress call from the people of Fish Dam, entry point into Nigeria from Chad, about insurgents that had come into their village to steal food items and extort from the villagers.
The JTF got to the scene but two farmers had already been beheaded. The JTF were reported to have chased the insurgents out of the village and disloged them with 81 mm mortar bombs.
As at the time of this report, the head of MNJTF, Baga, could not be reached for a statement. But a source, who pleaded anonymity confirmed the incident.
