Four villages attacked, scores dead

4 Jun, 2014

Armed gunmen on ATVs and motorcycles, disguised as soldiers, attack Goshe, Attagara, Agapalwa and Aganjara villages in northeastern Borno State.  Some villagers escape across the border into Cameroon. Death counts are not yet known, but unconfirmed reports list over 100 people killed just in Goshe.  A Goshe resident tells CNN:

They laid siege on the village and opened fire with Kalashnikovs and fired RPGs (rocket-propelled grenades), burning the entire village with its 300 homes and a few mosques. We lost many people including vigilantes who tried to fight off the Boko Haram attackers.
