#BokoHaram massacring innocent Nigerians while the Nigerian Army massacring innocent Shia Muslims:

Yesterday #BokoHaram wearing Nigerian Army uniforms attacked #Dalori village that is just 5km from #Maiduguri town, the capital of Borno state. The attack which started at about 7:00pm Nigerian Time (6:00pm GMT) on Saturday lasted for 4 hours unchallenged.

The gunmen, according to survivors, invaded the village using dozens of motorbikes, a truck and light armoured tank (called Igwa in local parlance). They also set the whole village of about 1000 houses ablaze during the attack.

Provisional report by hospital sources said at least 65 people were killed when gunmen believed to be members of the Boko Haram attacked Dalori Village. Officials at the Maiduguri Specialists Hospital, who did not want their names published as they are not authorised to speak to the media, said about 65 corpses were deposited at the morgue between yesterday night and this morning after the attack.

Over 100 injured persons were also admitted at the hospital for various injuries. Some other corpses were reportedly taken to the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital. Witnesses of the attack on Dalori, 5km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, said corpses of burnt children and aged persons as well as those killed from gunshots still littered the village after a four hours attack by the gunmen.

This attack comes less than two months that the Nigerian Army perpetrated the brutal Zaria massacre where heinous war crimes were committed. The Nigerian Army not only shot defenseless unarmed Nigerians & burnt some of them alive but also launched rocket propelled grenades on civilians. More than one thousand defenseless Nigerians were killed by the Nigerian Army in the #Zaria_Massacre.
