SAN FRANCISCO, April 06, (THEWILL)  –  Rampaging Boko Haram gunmen who disguised as Islamic preachers Sunday killed no fewer than 24 unsuspecting villagers in Kwajafa, Southern Borno State.

More than 12 others were also injured in the attack that took the unsuspecting villagers by surprise.

Local sources told THEWILL that the insurgents had stormed the village in a convoy of Volkswagen Golf cars pretending to be preachers.

But no sooner than the unsuspecting villagers gathered to listen to the 'preachers' that the insurgents opened fire on them, killing no fewer than 24 while several others sustained varying degrees of injuries from gunshots.

The rampaging gunmen were also said to have set ablaze a local mosque in the village.

Confirming the incident, a source at the General Hospital Biu, who craved anonymity, said some of those injured in the attack were brought to the hospital from Kwajafa.
