Muslims attacked the village of Rann in Nigeria, but a certain militia, awaiting for their attackers, rose up with their guns and bravely attacked the jihadists. Four hundred Muslim fighters arrived at around 3:00 AM, and they stormed the village, only to be counterattacked by the militias who came on the attack with guns and bows and arrows. By the end of the violent struggle, the militia managed to slaughter 200 jihadists. One militant recounted:
They wanted to attack us just the way they did in Bama, Konduga and Damboa, but we got the wind of it and all of us laid ambush for them; when they neared the village, we opened fire using our Dane duns, double barrel rifles and bows-and-arrows, most of them who were shocked took to their heels, but many of them died, some that were injured have been caught alive and are with the security people as I am talking to you.
A local described how the locals were so tired of Boko Haram’s violence and the government’s incompetence to do anything, that they decided to defend themselves:
Exasperated with the endless terror unleashed upon them, local people have finally had enough and decided to take direct action to rid themselves of the menace.
A state legislator praised the militia’s actions:
The villagers succeeded in protecting their dwellings from the attackers. They killed about 200 members of the sect and many others escaped with serious wounds… Our people also recovered over 70 motorcycles that the attackers came with. They also collected 2 Hilux vehicles and an Armoured Personnel Carrier (APC) while some of the attackers were captured alive.
Mike Omeri of the National Information Centre also gave his praise for the valiancy of the people:
The Federal Government commends the Kalabalge people for moving ahead of the Boko Haram to foil attempt at unleashing terror on their community.
The situation in Nigeria will lead to a civil war.
This is why a society must have the right to bear arms. A people who do not bear arms, will eventually be killed off by those do.
