Boko Haram terrorists have attacked Rann village in Kalabalge Local Government Area of Borno State, killing three farmers and abducting six women.
Sources told DAILY NIGERIAN that the insurgents stormed the village on motorcycles on Sunday, firing random gunshots at the villagers.
“Most of the victims were farmers. Boko Haram killed three of them and went away with six women,” said a source who craved anonymity.
Zainab Gimba, a member representing Bama, Ngala and Kalabalge Federal Constituency also confirmed the attack to DAILY NIGERIAN in a telephone chat on Monday, but did not reveal the casualty figure.
“Boko Haram abducted several women and killed farmers in my constituency. The incident was reported to me on Sunday by one of the locals who called with a Cameroon mobile phone network,” she said.
Spokesman for the Nigerian Army, Colonel Sagir Musa, did not respond to DAILY NIGERIAN call and text message seeking response to the incident.
On 17 January 2017, the Nigerian Air Force mistakenly dropped bombs in an Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs camp in Rann, killing at least 52 people and wounding over 100 others.
In January this year, Boko Haram struck at the ill-fated camp, killing at least 60 people, according to Amnesty International report.
