  • More than 50 people were killed when armed Boko Haram fighters stormed the village of Dalori, northeastern Nigeria
  • Children were among those burnt to death when extremists opened fire and torched homes after evening prayers

Children were among those killed when Islamist terror group Boko Haram torched a village in north-eastern Nigeria, according to reports.

More than 50 villagers lost their lives when fighters armed with guns and explosives stormed Dalori, some seven miles from the city of Maiduguri, late on Sunday.

Extremists began shooting indiscriminately and set fire to homes and businesses after driving into the village shortly after evening prayers. Residents who tried to escape by fleeing to nearby bush were later hunted down and shot dead by insurgents.

Horrific photographs of the village in the aftermath of the strike show the charred bodies of humans and animals strewn across the streets.

It came as three people were killed and 56 others were wounded in two suicide attacks in the nearby region around Lake Chad, which is frequently targeted by Boko Haram.

Army spokesman Colonel Mustapha Anka said the assailants arrived ‘in two cars and on motorcycles, they opened fire then set light to homes,’ he said.

Three female suicide bombers who had initially tried to mingle with the villagers ‘were intercepted then blew themselves up,’ he said. The assailants also tried to strike a nearby camp for people displaced by Boko Haram but were repelled by troops, he added.

Community leader Malam Masa Dalori said: ‘We were seated outside our home shortly after the Isha prayer when we heard gunshots and within a few minutes the invaders had arrived. ‘They came in Golf saloon cars and began to shoot sporadically. Many people ran to the bush including myself.

‘When we came back in the morning the entire community has been razed. At least 50 people were killed, and there are many people wounded.’

Another villager, Mallam Hassan, gave a similar account. He said: ‘I lost an uncle in the attack. But I thank God I escaped with my children.’

An aid worker who did not want to be named, also put the number of dead at more than 50, saying the bodies had been taken to hospital.

Maiduguri, known for being the spiritual birthplace of the Boko Haram movement,has been hit by several attacks in the recent months as the militants have tried to retake the city from which they were pushed out three years ago.

Attacks have continued in the region despite claims by President Muhammadu Buhari that Nigeria had ‘technically’ beaten Boko Haram.

The attack was swiftly condemned by the European Union, which said it was committed to supporting regional African states in the fight against such extremist groups.

A statement read: ‘The EU remains committed to providing a comprehensive range of political, development and humanitarian support to Nigeria and the region in tackling this threat and in ensuring the sound development of the region.’

Boko Haram has taken to attacking soft targets, increasingly with suicide bombers, since the military last year drove them out of towns and villages in north-eastern Nigeria. The six-year Islamic uprising has killed about 20,000 people and driven 2.5 million from their homes.

Attacks have continued in the region despite claims by President Muhammadu Buhari late last year that Nigeria had ‘technically’ won the war against the terror group.

        That’s as sensible as denouncing Judaism as a terror-based ideology because of Leviticus. And some brain-dead Islamic apologists have done just that.

        Very cavalier of you, Adam.
