Reports from North Eastern Nigeria indicate that members of the terrorists group Boko Haram are currently attacking Kayamla village of Borno.

An official of the local vigilante called Civilian-JTF in Borno, Muhammed Gava, who confirmed the attack to wire service providers, said report on the attack on  Kayamla, which is about 20km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital was ongoing at 2:10 p.m on Saturday.

“We just got a report from our vigilante members around Konduga local government area that Boko Haram terrorists were in Kayamla and we have just assembled a team of vigilante members and the Civilian-JTF who are about to storm Kayamla now,” he said.

Kayamla was last attacked by the Boko Haram in January last year. Saturday’s attack comes barely 24 hours after Boko Haram attacked a fishing community about 15km from Maiduguri.

Four fishermen were beheaded and dumped inside the river Alau, while five other fishermen were allegedly taken away by the insurgents, who were later killed by Civilian-JTF who trailed them to a Balle Village.

Meanwhile security source have also revealed that 16 of the terrorists who took part in the killing of the fishermen were killed by members of the JTF.
