Two sources in the besieged community, which is near the Borno State capital, Maiduguri, told our local correspondent that the Islamist terrorists razed down all the houses in Alau, killed at least two persons, and wounded 18 people.
One source, Malam Adamu Ibn, said the Boko Haram militants could have killed more residents if a local vigilante had not mobilized quickly to fight back.
A security source told SaharaReporters that the Islamist terrorists arrived in the community on bikes and shot sporadically in the air, scaring resident, before embarking on their mission of setting homes on fire.
Alau, the scene of the attack, is about 15 kilometers from Maiduguri. source
