Boko Haram has again, struck in Borno State kill­ing no fewer than 48 people in two separate attacks.

One of the latest victims of the insurgents' attacks was Alagarno village in Askira-Uba Local Govern­ment Area, about 50 kilo­metres to the hometown of the abducted schoolgirls, South of Borno.

'They killed many peo­ple including men, women and children,' a source said.

Also, at Shawa village in Damboa Local Govern­ment Area, the insurgents reportedly killed a number of people in another dusk attack.

The Emir of Askira, Alhaji Abubakar Moham­madu Askirama II, in an interview with BBC Hau­sa Service, monitored in Maiduguri, confirmed the incident and appealed to the Federal Government to deploy more troops to the area.

He lamented that the area had been witnessing incessant attacks in recent times. Details of the Shawa attack remained scanty as at press time.
