Yet another brutal massacre was just done by Boko Haram in Nigeria. They attacked two towns, burning down many homes and businesses and slaughtering at least forty innocent people. According to one report:
Boko Haram militants have exported their violence from Nigeria for the second time this week, waging violent attacks on two towns in neighboring Niger that killed at least 40 people, a government official reported on Thursday.
Members of the Nigeria-based Islamist extremist group crossed the border into Niger to carry out the violence, reportedly setting homes on fire in the villages of Lamana and Ngoumawa, according to Yakouba Soumana Gaoh, the governor of Niger’s Diffa region.
“The attackers looted stores, burned villages, and shot at people who tried to flee,” the official said, adding that authorities were searching for the perpetrators.
Today’s attacks follow two suicide bombings in the Chad, which lies along Nigeria’s northeast border, earlier this week that left 34 people dead. Carried out in the capital N’Djamena, these were the first suicide bombings of this nature in the capital. Four suicide bombers were reportedly involved in the plot, two in each building that was targeted.
Authorities pinned the pair of attacks on Boko Haram, with an official saying on Thursday that at least five suspects were arrested.
“There has been progress,” Chad’s Interior and Public Security Minister Abderahim Bireme Hamid said of the response to the violence that injured 100 people. “Several suspects, between five and six, have been arrested.”
