Boko Haram terrorists have killed dozens of people in KwaJaffa village situated in Northern Nigeria before proceeding to burn down several houses. Over 20 terrorists arrived on Sunday evening in a convoy of car under the disguise of Islamic dawah (proselytization). The terrorists – dressed in clerical garments – then convinced the village members to congregate at the local mosque. The villagers obliged.
Once inside the mosque, the terrorists opened fire on the villagers killing over a dozen on the spot as other villagers escaped from the mosque. It was at this point that the terrorists embarked on a looting spree prior to torching several houses in the village. Their carnage saw half of the village totally destroyed. The injured were moved to hospitals in Biu town where they are currently being treated.
Boko Haram has allied itself to ISIL, and its Islamist terror campaign had threatened to destabilize the neighboring nations of Chad, Cameroon and Niger. In Nigeria itself, Boko Haram insurgency has killed over 13,000 people as well as displaced another 3 million from their homes. Moreover, its insurgency has almost destroyed the economy of North-East Nigeria as most traders fled while the remaining businesses have suffered repeated attacks from members of the terror group.
