At least more than 50 people were feared dead with scores sustained gunshot wounds when some group of suspected Boko Haram terrorists invaded Kirawa village of Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno state. Reliable sources have revealed.

Our Correspondent learnt that the incident took place on Thursday when traders and buyers were busy observing their market day in Kirawa.
This is coming barely two days when suspected group of insurgents laid siege on Kolori and Ba’ana Imam villages of Damboa local government area killing 23 residents with injuring of many others.

Kirawa, a mountainous and remote area which is located east of troubled Gwoza destroyed town and shares international border with francophone speaking communities of Cameroon Republic.

Sources told our Correspondent that the insurgents who were armed with sophisticated weapons including AK47 rifles and petrol bombs invaded Kirawa on their market day and wrecked havoc living 53 people dead with over 100 injured.

” 53 of our people were shot dead with over 100 injured when a group of terrorists invaded our market square. The market always attracted Cameroonian traders and customers.
” 24 hours after the deadly attack on our market, two female suicide bombers who attempted to detonated their Improvised Explosive Devices strapped on their bodies were arrested by combine team of residents and youth vigilante on Friday after Juma’at prayers”. Said an Elder in Kirawa who did not want his name mentioned in the print for security reasons.

Another source who also hail from Kirawa but reside in Maiduguri, the state capital told our Correspondent that he received a distress call from one of his fleeing family members who crossed over to Cameroon Republic after the attack left scores of people in Kirawa dead and injured after setting ablaze many shops and houses, with looting of foodstuff and live stocks belonging to the armless residents.

” One of my family member from Kirawa called me on Friday evening that our community have been under deadly attack by insurgents, they had to flee to Cameroon before they get access to telecommunication services as most of the telecom masts in kirawa and other communities Behring mountains (Bayan Dutse) were destroyed last year by terrorists”. Mallam Ali Musa Kirawa, a resident of Maiduguri told our Correspondent.

All effort to get confirmation from the Police Commissioner, Mr. Aderemi Opadokun proves abortive as his cell phone was not reachable at press time
