Ramadan Death count: Nigeria 21/06/16

At least two people were killed in a Boko Haram raid on a village in northeast Nigeria on the border with Cameroon, residents said on Monday.  The attack happened early on Saturday in Wumbi in the Kalabalge district of northern Borno state and forced hundreds of residents to cross into Cameroon, resident Konto Yamani said.

"Boko Haram gunmen attacked our village around 4:00 am (0300 GMT) and killed two people while everybody crossed the river into Cameroon,they came on 10 motorcycles and fired indiscriminately, which jolted people out of their sleep, before they began to set our houses on fire after looting our food stocks.".

Ramadan death toll is now at 4,771
