Terrorists kill 2 Indian nationals, injure 3 in Borno

MAIDUGURI -A gang of gunmen suspected to be
members of the Boko Haram sect, Wednesday
killed two Indian nationals and injured three
others at their Gum Arabic factory at about 1pm
Wednesday at the Zajeri Industrial area of
Maiduguri in Borno state.
The gunmen, according to an eyewitness
demanded for unspecified sum of money from
the Indian traders, before they fired several gun
shots into the factory and fled in an unmarked
vehicle chanting Allahu Akbar, ( God is great!)
The eyewitness said: “We had to run for our
lives, as the gunmen continued to fire
sporadically to scare us from the scene,” adding
that it took the Joint Task Force (JTF) half an
hour before the soldiers arrived at the Zajeri
Industrial Area prevent further attacks and
He said none of the local residents were killed or
injured, except for the five Indian nationals that
were killed and wounded in the attacks.
Hospital sources at the University of Maiduguri
Teaching Hospital (UMTH) told our
Correspondent in a telephone conversation
Wednesday that two bodies of the dead Indians
and the injured were brought into the hospital’s
Accident & Emergency Unit (AEU) by men of JTF
in their patrol van at about 1.30pm.
The attendant said that the three injured Indian
nationals have already been put under intensive
unit while the bodies of the dead had been
deposited at hospital morgue for autopsy and
identifications by relations.
Confirming the incident, the spokesman of JTF,
Lt. Col Sagir Musa in a signed press statement
said that two Indians were killed and another
injured at the Gum Arabic Factory.
The statement in part: “information available to
the JTF indicated that suspected Boko Haram
terrorists attacked a Gum Arabic Factory
operated by Indians located at Bayern Quarters,
Maiduguri metropolis at 1pm today during the
heavy down pour of rain. The incident led to the
death of two Indians and one wounded and is
receiving treatment at UMTH.”
He said the suspects made away with thousands
of naira from the factory, adding that the area
has been condoned; and search was in progress
with a view of apprehending the culprits.
