Four women have been murdered in an attack by Boko Haram in Nigeria. The attack was carried out on Friday night at Mairari, a remote village located 80 kilometers from Maiduguri, capital of Borno state.
Cameroon Intelligence Report learned that fifteen Boko Haram fighters on motorbikes raided homes and slaughtered the four women at the time of breaking fast during this period of Ramadan. The women were killed because their husbands refused to join the ranks of the Nigerian Islamic sect.
Boko Haram has been greatly weakened by a joint multinational force consisting of 8700 men of the different armies of the region (Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon, Niger, and Benin) but continues to carry out attacks in the north east of Nigeria and Cameroon.
