Boko Haram members yesterday June 22nd stormed Debiro village in
Hawul LGA of Borno state in trucks and motorcycles, burnt houses and
slit the throats of 20 villagers.
A resident of the village who spoke to Sahara Reporters, on condition
of anonymity said;
“It was in the afternoon time when we started hearing gunshots and
people were running helter-skelter, there was confusion everywhere,
some were shot dead and many had their throats slit.
We were helpless as our foodstuffs were carted away by the
rampaging militants who later burnt down most of the houses in our
I can’t say tell you the correct number of people killed, but at least 20
people including women had their throats slit.”
