Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have stormed Molai general area, an outskirts of Maiduguri, Borno state on Tuesday evening, killing no lesser than 10 people, including soldiers.
According to a resident, Mallam Isa Kagama, Hundreds of houses were razed in Maiboriti and Molai villages as well as the military checking point in the area by the insurgents.
“At least 10 persons were killed including soldiers, 3 civilians at Maiboriti village and 4 persons equally lost their lives in Molai.
“We have witnessed a high level of devastation like never before; they destroyed the power transmission plants that supply the whole of Maiduguri; just look at our homes, they have rendered us homeless,” Mallam Isa said amidst tears
Recall that Molai, which is about 4 kilometres away from Maiduguri, the state capital, has suffered severe attacks from Boko Haram insurgents in recent years.
Meanwhile, Military earlier claimed that they repelled the attacks on Molai general area.
However, witnesses lamented the destruction meted out on innocent civilians by the insurgents, while claiming the attackers walked freely in the village.
