Borno Vigilance Group Kills 17 Boko Haram Fighters

Seventeen members of the terrorist group, Boko Haram, were killed on Wednesday afternoon by a youth vigilance group in Lahou village in Borno State.

Speaking with our correspondent from the village, the leader of the youth vigilance group in the council, Apagu Bitrus, said the terrorists attacked Lahou at about 4pm on Wednesday but were overpowered.
Lahou is close to Ngulde in Askira-Uba Local Government Area, which is about 70 kilometres to Biu, the commercial centre of the south of Borno State.

Apagu added, “We slew 17 militants on Wednesday evening when they invaded Lahou village and equally seized two vehicles from them.”
‎He stated that the attackers were teenagers, whose ages he believed ranged from 12 to 17 years.
Apagu said, “I can confidently tell you that when we took the battle to them, some of them fled but we are going to bury those who were killed this morning (Thursday).”
He, however, lamented that a member of the youth vigilance group, who was a former councilor in the local government was killed by the terrorists in the attack.
