Boko Haram Kills Four, Steals N21.5 Million LG Salaries in Borno

Lagos/Abuja/Maiduguri — Boko Haram piled on the pressure with impunity on Monday, killing another four persons and carting off N21.5 million workers' salary in Borno, after its rampage between Saturday and Sunday, in which 12 persons, including a Council Chairman, were murdered and 14 injured.

The disclosure in Abuja by the State Security Service (SSS) that it detected and demobilised 12 bombs in Kaduna in May and June counts for nothing against the arsenal of the fundamentalist Islamic jihadists, who mounted another deadly explosion in Maiduguri on Sunday.

Eight persons were killed and 13 injured in that attack on Sunday, 24 hours before SSS Assistant Director (Public Affairs), Marilyn Ogar, announced the detection of bombs and the arrest of over 100 insurgents in the states of Bauchi, Kaduna, Kano, Yobe, Borno, and Adamawa.
