Borno State.

The spokesman for the government’s anti-terrorism squad Lt. Col. Sagir Musa said on Monday July 2, 2012 that the gunmen slashed the throats of the victims in a late Sunday night attack in the embattled city. Musa cited a painful experience concerning one of the victims who was found today Monday who was bleeding from the neck and struggling to breadth.

Many of the killed are reported to be Christians from the southern section of Nigeria. The city of Maiduguri has been, according to USAfrica news index November 2010 to June 2012, the target of the highest number of violent and wanton attacks claimed by the Boko Haram sect in northern Nigeria.
