MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The outlet cited sources as saying Boko Haram gunmen pillaged the remote villages of Kachifa and Yakhari "In utility vehicles and on bicycles."
"[Boko Haram] has slaughtered 22 people in Yakhari village today, including children, and our food items were looted," a JTF source told the outlet by phone near the Borno state town of Biu.
Eight people were shot dead late Friday in Kachifa before the village was burned down, the JTF source added, saying "there is nothing standing there as I am speaking to you."
Boko Haram began large-scale attacks in northeast Nigeria in 2009, seeking to establish fundamentalist sharia law on territories under its control.
