Gunmen, suspected to be Boko Haram militants, have killed dozens of people, mostly Christians, in a village in northeast Nigeria, an official and residents said Sunday.
"They killed many many people in the attack late Saturday. From the latest information I have gathered, more than 60 people have been killed," the local government chairman in the area, Maina Ularamu, told AFP.
Ularamu, who spoke to AFP from the Nigerian capital Abuja, said the toll which he gathered from residents of the village of Izghe in troubled Borno state still had to be verified.
