Six people were slaughtered in the early hours of Tuesday by members of the dreaded Boko Haram sect in the twin towns of Gamboru and Ngala in Borno State.

Daily Correspondents learned that the incident occurred in three different locations in the northeastern town that is neighbouring Cameroonian.

According to a member of a local security outfit, known as Civilian JTF, three people had their throat slit open within the heart of Gamboru-Ngala, while two were slaughtered at a cattle market in the town.

One other person was killed along the Cameroonian border with Nigeria.

Gamboru Ngala has been a strategic town used by the sect to launch attacks in the past, including kidnappings and murder in both Nigeria and Cameroon.

In May of 2014, Boko Haram militants attacked the twin towns, killing roughly 310 residents in an attack that lasted 12 hours.
