by ‘Jola Sotubo

Guests at a bachelor party in Borno received a rude shock when armed gunmen invaded the venue and opened fire.

The attackers, suspected to be members of terrorist sect, Boko Haram, were said to have arrived at the location on motorcycles.

This latest attack in the Tashan Alade area of the state is said to have left at least 8 people dead and several others with varying degrees of injury.

The Nation reports:

Suspected Boko Haram fighters opened fire on a bachelor party in Borno State, killing eight people and wounding several others, witnesses said yesterday.

“Three Boko Haram members came on motorcycles at about 11 yesterday night,” Abdul Usman said in Maiduguri, where he fled after escaping the attack on Tashan Alade village. “They were shooting indiscriminately.”

Security forces have stepped up the offensive against the rebels in the past few days after Boko Haram fighters armed with grenade launchers and anti-aircraft guns attacked an army barracks in Bama.
