15 killed by suspected sect members in Nigeria

Residents of a northeastern Nigerian village say suspected sect members disguised as traders invaded a market and opened fire, killing at least 15 people.

 

Ngubdo Modu said Thursday gunmen also set fire to the local government secretariat, police station and a clinic during the attack Wednesday in Gajiram, 75 kilometers (46 miles) from Maiduguri, the volatile capital city of Borno state where the Boko Haram ideology sprang up some four years ago. (AP)
