(Voice of the Persecuted) On Tuesday, Boko Haram Islamist militants killed 69 people during an attack on Faduma Koloram village in the Gubio area of Borno state. Many sustained gunshot wounds with 12 succumbing to their injuries on Wednesday, bringing the total casualties to 81. Nearly a dozen, including women and the head of the village, were said to be abducted.

Witnesses say the terrorists came in cars and on motorcycles killing residents at will in an attack that lasted 2 hours. Women and children fetching water were surrounded by the attackers and heinously gunned down. Livestock were either killed or carries away. The entire village was razed when homes were set ablaze as the militants left.

The community has witnessed deadly Boko Haram attacks in the past. Residents were armed and had been able to repel some of their attacks. However, this one took them by surprise.

After 11 years, the Islamist terror group remains a constant threat to communities in northeast Nigeria. Tens of thousands have been killed in their brutal attacks with over 2 million people displaced in the country.

Please pray for Nigeria.
