Abuja – Military sources have confirmed to Vanguard that over 50 persons were killed by scores of Boko haram terrorists armed with AK 47 rifles and other sophisticated weapons in close to one and half hours operation at Dalori village which is about 4 kilometers away from Maiduguri.
The successful attack, killing of such number of people and large scale destruction of property including killing of livestock and cattle is coming despite repeated government claims that Boko Haram has been degraded and that they don’t have the capacity to assemble or carry out any insurgent activity except through suicide bombings.
It will be recalled that the military on learning of the Boko Haram attack on Dalori on Saturday night, dispatched troops to engaged the Boko Haram sect members which resulted in a fierce gun battle.
The terrorists reported attacked Dalori and another village Walori at about 7pm, and had a field day, looting and killing villagers for over one before the military arrived.
The source said the villagers who had always been on the alert for the insurgents, were deceived by the fact that they came in Hilux Vans and were dressed in Camouflage hence they (villagers) mistook the terrorists for troops on patrol.
It was further gathered that bodies of those killed were evacuated to the Borno State Specialist Hospital in Maiduguri and the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital.
“Several others whose numbers were estimated at 70 who received gunshot, machete injuries, etc, were also evacuated to the two hospitals”, the source said.
