Suspected Boko Haram members on Saturday invaded a village on the outskirts of  Maiduguri, Borno State, and razed 65 houses.

The attack forced many of the residents to flee the village to avoid being  killed  by the terrorists. However,  some people were injured while a cripple was allegedly killed.

A statement by the North-East Zonal Coordinator of the National Emergency Management Agency, Bashir Garga, on Sunday read,  “Suspected insurgents attacked Bale Shuwa in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State around 7.30pm  on Saturday. One disabled person was allegedly killed while 65 houses were burnt.”

Garga added that the gangsters  carted  200 cows,  300 sheep and  some goats  away after the attack.

Meanwhile, the  Nigerian Army said  on Sunday  two Boko Haram commanders were killed by soldiers during  clearance operations in Borno, according to the News Agency of Nigeria.

The army  on its Twitter handle named the  Boko Haram commanders as  Abu Rajal and Tuja Sa’inna Banki.

The army tweeted, “Recall that troops of 25 Task Force Brigade, Chibok and 28 Task Force Brigade, Damboa, embarked on joint clearance operations from Gumsuri to Gambori in Borno on November 9, 2018.   They successfully cleared and liberated some villages.

“Reports just reaching the  Nigerian Army Headquarters confirmed that two high profile Boko Haram terrorists’ commanders named Abu Rajal and Tuja Sa’inna Banki were killed during the clearance operations.

“The Chief of Army Staff, Lt General  Tukur Buratai, commended the gallant troops and urged them to carry out further incursions and clearance operations to ensure that the remnants of the insurgents were completely wiped out.”
