Flash: 6 Killed In Ngalda, Yobe State; Residents Suspect Boko Haram

Nigeria’s military says that at least six people have been killed in an attack in Yobe State in northeastern Nigeria, a region under attack by Islamic extremists.

Lt. Eli Lazarus said Sunday the attack happened Saturday night in Ngalda town.

Lazarus said no one has been arrested for the attack. However, local residents say they suspect the radical Islamic sect known as Boko Haram carried out the attack. Boko Haram is blamed for attacks which killed 792 people in 2012, according to a count.
