Barely 24 hours after gunmen suspected to be members of Boko Haram sect attacked a boarder communities of Logomani villages between Dikwa – Gamboru Ngala and Cameroon Republic killing over 20 civilians including motorists, another set of gunmen suspected to be terrorists over the weekend invaded villages of Kawuri District and Fori of Konduga Local Government Area of Borno state, killing 10 residents including three vigilante youth suspected to be civilian JTF.

Kawuri District is one of the big village in Konduga council area, along the Maiduguri- Obama federal highway which is about 60 kilometres away from Maiduguri, and 20 kilometres to Obama council area which had witnessed series of attacks and killings of both civilians, soldiers, policemen and prison warders.

Although details of the attack is still sketchy, and unconfirmed report has it that the gunmen numbering about 30 using two Hilux vehicle and motorcycles with arms and ammunition, Rocket Propel Launchers including Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs), stormed the village at about 3am at the weekend and started ordering residents to come out from their houses before they opened fire on them, and later threw explosives on petrol bombs on some private and public structures.
