Boko Haram Strikes Again In Borno State Killing 29.

Suspected members of the violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, have again bombed a market in Nguro-Soye, near Bama, Borno State, killing no fewer than 29 persons. Reuters reported on Sunday that the attack on the market was said to have been carried out on Saturday night. “I travelled to Bama to buy bags of beans. Suddenly, there was a deafening bang at the middle of the market.
It was in the late afternoon and commercial activities were at their peak,” said Shuaibu Abdulahi, a trader at the market. He estimated the death toll to be as high as 29. Abba Tahir, a bus driver who was said to be offloading passengers at the market during the incident, said he counted 20 bodies. “People were helping in evacuating the corpses after the confusion had died down. Some people who were injured were taken to the general hospital,” Tahir added. There was no claim of responsibility for the attack yet as of the time of this report. Punch News.
