Boko Haram Strikes Again In Maiduguri.

                                  Members of the boko haram sect
Again the outlawed Boko Haram sect attacked Banki, a border town in Bama Local Government Area of Bornu State killing people at will, moment after they sacked the only police station in the town. However, some residents who spoke on condition of anonymity, said many people were killed by the sect members, who went from house to house slitting  their victims’ throats in the siege that lasted over an hour in the earlier hours of Wednesday.
This latest attack was not the first on the town, as it has been variously attacked by the sect in similar fashion. Residents told journalists in Maiduguri on Thursday that the  attackers rode on motorcycles and Hilux Toyota  vehicles,they added that the attackers, who were armed with sophisticated weapons, attacked the police station first before they started killing residents. One of the survivors, John Samuel, who spoke to journalists in Maiduguri said, “They drove from the nearby bush using motorcycles and carrying sophisticated weapons around 2am.” He said that the attackers used rocket propellers to attack the station which caught fire immediately. “Some of the policemen tried to engage them in a shoot out but they realised that the invaders had superior weapons so they had to run,” he said. Samuel said that the attackers also raided homes killing and maiming residents before they fled the town through a bush path.
