Boko Haram attacked in Borno and 5 killed

No fewer than five people were killed in Banki, a border town in Borno State, during attacks said to be launched by the Boko Haram Islamist sect.

The police also claimed to have killed five of the attackers.
The attackers stormed the commercial town of Banki, a small community about 145 kilomtres from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital at about 7pm on Tuesday night. They were said to have launched an offensive against Banki Police Station, immigration and customs outposts, killing three civilians, a policeman and an immigration personnel.

Sources said the attacks, which lasted for about three hours, caused great panic among residents as many were said to have stayed indoors even till the early hours of yesterday. “It was bad and many of us couldn’t sleep throughout the night because of the gunshots. You known anybody could be a target or be hit by stray bullet in such situation,” one of the residents of the area said in a phone conversation.

When would this stop?
