MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — A security official says at least 10 people were killed in attacks in northeast Nigeria likely carried out by a radical Islamist sect.
The security official said the killings happened Sunday in a village called Chibok in Borno state, where ongoing attacks by the sect known as Boko Haram have killed hundreds this year. The official said the dead came from a church attacked by the gunmen and a road construction crew. Meanwhile, gunmen also burned down government buildings in the village of Gamboru.
The official spoke on condition of anonymity as only the military is allowed to discuss such attacks now in the region. A military spokesman could not be immediately reached for comment.
Boko Haram is waging an increasingly bloody guerrilla conflict with Nigeria's weak central government.
