At least 80 people killed when gunmen attacked worshippers in a series of mosques in northeastern town of Kukawa.



Boko Haram fighters have gunned down at least 80 Muslims praying in mosques in a northeastern Nigerian town during the holy month of Ramadan, a member of a local vigilante group said.

Al Jazeera's Yvonne Ndege, reporting from Abuja on Thursday, said the victims, mostly men, were killed in the remote town of Kukawa, and that the death toll was expected to rise.

"We are being told that Boko Haram fighters arrived in seven cars and on nine motorcycles in the town before embarking on their attack, and that over 1,000 Nigerian soldiers were in Kanwa, about 11km away but didn't come to the rescue," our correspondent said.

The attack took place on Wednesday night but news of the gruesome incident only came to light on Thursday, our correspondent said.

The attack on Kukawa came a day after the group attacked a village 35km away and killed another 48 men and boys.

The people of Kukawa were in several mosques, praying ahead of breaking their daylong fast, when the fighters attacked, the official said on Thursday.

Officials in Kukawa said some fighters also broke into people's homes, killing women and children as they prepared the evening meal.

Kukawa is 180km northeast of Maiduguri, the biggest city in northeast Nigeria and the birthplace of Boko Haram.

The Nigerian group often defiles mosques where it believes imams espouse too moderate a form of Islam.

Wednesday's attack follows a directive from the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) group for fighters to increase attacks during Ramadan.

Boko Haram this year became ISIL's West African franchise.

On Tuesday night, Boko Haram invaded the village of Mussaram, ordered men and women to separate and then opened fire on the men and boys, witnesses said.

"A total of 48 males died on the spot while 17 others escaped with serious injuries," said Maidugu Bida, a local vigilante group commander, based in nearby Monguno.

I imagine the nescaster delivering the news at 10pm. "Islamic militants Boko Haram has slaughtered hundreds of muslims while they were having their prayers in the holy Month of Ramadan"

scratch What sort of Terrorist kills what he is fighting for? Am i the only one who thinks that the only way we can these Misguided hooligans is if we admit that their agenda is more than just religious incitement.

Sad Who are they going to live with in their so called Islamic state if they keep shedding blood every few hours in the name of Jihad. The facts are increasing by the minute that indicates that Boko Haram is using islam as a shield to perpetrate whatever crimes they intend doing.

Boko Haram at a glance

Founded in 2002, initially focused on opposing Western-style education - Boko Haram means "Western education is forbidden" in the Hausa language

Launched military operations in 2009 to create Islamic state

Thousands killed, mostly in north-eastern Nigeria - has also attacked police and UN headquarters in capital, Abuja

Has abducted hundreds, including at least 200 schoolgirls

Seized vast area in north-east, where it declared caliphate

Regional force has retaken most territory

And Yet Past and current governments with the help of UN cant handle them. They always seem unprepared whenever these guys attack.
