Islamic militants attacked a predominantly Christian area in northeastern Nigeria on Sunday, November 3, “slaughtering” villagers, just days after they killed Christians elsewhere in the region, residents and pastors said.
Local media quoted fleeing residents as saying suspected members of the Boko Haram group “slaughtered several people as they were heading to church” in Sabon Gari, on the border of Nigeria’s Borno and Adamawa states.
It was not immediately clear how many people had died, but at least dozens of Christians were feared dead in Borno and Adamawa states according to conservative estimates, following recent attacks attributed to Boko Haram.
In one of the bloodiest incidents last week, suspected Boko Haram fighters stormed the northeast Nigerian town of Mubi, killing Christians, BosNewsLife learned.
“Many Christians were killed,” confirmed two local pastors to a BosNewsLife reporter. “Churches were attacked and torched,” added the pastors who were not identified for security reasons.
Some 350 children were reportedly missing following ensuing clashes between Nigerian troops and Boko Haram, Nigerian media reported.
