Suspected Boko Haram insurgents have reportedly attacked another community in Borno state, north-east Nigeria.

At least 200 houses were set on fire last night when the insurgents invaded Mamanti village, on the outskirts of Maiduguri, according to an aid agency official.

The suspected Islamist militants rode on bicycles as they shot wildly into the community, shouting “God is the greatest”.

Heavy sounds of explosion and gun shots forced residents to flee in panic.

A resident of the village was killed, an official of the Borno state Emergency Management Agency told the BBC.

Last weekend suspected Boko Haram insurgents attacked another village in Borno state – Bale-Shuwa in Jere Local Government area – burning down 65 houses. They killed one disabled person and stole several cows and goats.
