Boko Haram kills four women in NE Nigeria

Kano, Nigeria: Boko Haram has killed four women in a remote village in Nigeria´s northeast in the latest attack by the group, local vigilantes assisting the military said on Saturday.

Fourteen Boko Haram gunmen on seven motorcycles stormed Mairari village, 80 kilometres from Maiduguri, the state capital late Friday and picked four women from their homes and slit their throats, they said.

The women were aged between 27 and 45.

“They went into four homes while residents were breaking their fast around 7:00 pm, brought out the four women and slaughtered them,” Babakura Kolo, a vigilante in Maiduguri told AFP.

“We believe the killings were targeted, the gunmen were from all indications after the husbands of the women,” he said.

“They killed the women when they didn´t find their husbands”.

Another vigilante, Musa Ari gave a similar account.

“The general feeling is that the women´s husbands either refused to accept Boko Haram´s invitation to join their ranks or the group suspects them of passing information about them to the authorities,” Ari told AFP.

Boko Haram has been accused of forcing residents to join its fighters or get killed.

The group has abducted thousands of people, including women and children who it used as conscripts, suicide bombers and sex slaves.
