Suspected Boko Haram gunmen on Sunday returned to a village in northeast Nigeria where 106 people were killed last week, torching homes, shooting and setting off explosives, a local official said.
The latest attack in Izghe, Borno state, happened at about 1:00 am (0000 GMT) and forced residents who had returned to the village after the Feb. 15 deadly strike to flee again.
Maina Ularamu, the chairman of the Madagali local government area in neighboring Adamawa state, told AFP that “nothing remains but burnt ruins.”
Izghe is in Gwoza district of Borno but its residents have closer ties with Madagali due to its proximity and ethnic allegiances.
