Nigerian Tribune reported that Boko Haram militants had recently intensified bloody attacks in the rural areas, as over 100 villagers had reportedly lost their lives within the last one week.

The latest incident occurred in the afternoon when dozens of the insurgents, armed with assault rifles and explosives, invaded a weekly market in Kamuyya village and killied 20 persons.

Residents said the insurgents had visited the town about two months ago and asked the village head to mobilise his subjects to contribute the sum of N250,000 for them in order to excute God’s work.
The villagers, most of them peasant farmers and petty traders, had only managed to raised N70,000, a situation which angered the insurgents.

They reportedly  threatened to return and collect the balance, warning the community to either heed to their demand within a stipulated period or of face deadly attack.

Another resident, who declined identification, claimed that over 100 houses were burnt, after the attackers killed 20 people, leaving several others wounded.
