21 shot dead by gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko haram sects.

Suspected Boko Haram gunmen shot dead 21 people in
northeastern part of Nigeria who were trying to return home to recover abandoned
food supplies, a local official and a
victim's relative said Monday.


"The men, 21 of them, were stopped
at Bultaram (village) by gunmen we
believe are Boko Haram who shot
them dead," said Baba Nuhu, an
official with the Gujba local government in Yobe state.

Nuhu and Haruna Malam, the
brother of one of the victims, spoke
to AFP from Yobe's capital Damaturu, where many Gujba
residents have fled to seek refuge from Boko Haram violence.
