Sharing is caring!

In an awful incident of gun shooting, twenty people have been shot dead by suspected Boko Haram gunmen on a road outside a village in Nigeria’s northeast Borno state , Kano (Nigeria) on Oct 22. A large group of Boko Haram gunmen fleeing a military offensive on their camp in Nganzai district yesterday opened fire on four cars just outside Jingalta village, 70 kilometres(45 miles) north of Maiduguri, killing all 20 passengers inside, a vigilante and a villager said.

Jibir Hassan, a commercial bus driver who arrived at the scene after the gunmen had fled, confirmed the death toll. “When we arrived at Jingalta village, we found it smoldering, with everything completely burnt and just outside the village we saw bodies sprawled by the roadside, 20 of them in all,” said Hassan. “Near the bodies were charred remains of four cars, still smoldering,” he said.
