Suspected Boko Haram fighters killed at least 43 people in separate incidents in Kaga and Kukawa local government areas of Borno State over the weekend, locals and security sources said.

In the violence on Friday and Saturday, 23 people were killed in Mainok and 20 in Dawashi when the sect's gunmen launched reprisals against the so-called Civilian JTF group, which is hunting for insurgents.

Many more people were also injured, some of them with life-threatening gunshot wounds.

The Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) based in Kukawa confirmed the deaths in Dawashi, saying the incident happened when Boko Haram gunmen opened fire on vigilantes who stormed the village in search of insurgents."According to an eyewitness who pleaded anonymity, a group of Civilian Joint Task Force from Maiduguri stormed the village Dawashi in search of Boko Haram members when the suspected sect members came armed and fired sporadic shots that killed over twenty innocent civilians while a dozen secured serious gunshot injury," MNJTF spokesman Lt. Haruna Sani said in a statement emailed to journalists yesterday.
