On Sunday, Boko Haram invaded Monguno village in Borno State, leaving nine people dead, and 10 critically injured.
The insurgents who were disguised as customers, attacked a market in the village around 3 p.m, shooting sporadically at traders, Pulse.ng reports.
Sources say the attack seemed to be specifically targeted at certain traders.
“When they stormed the market, they shot at my neighbour, before proceeding to other shops as they were much selective in their operations,” said Mallam Abubakar Ali Monguno, one of the traders in the market.
Security operatives were reportedly deployed to the area, and normalcy is said to have been restored.
