A fresh attack by Boko Haram terrorists on Borno State has resulted in the death of at least 30 persons while no less than 18 vehicles were also completely burnt.

The insurgents launched the attack against travelling passengers in Auno, a town 20 kilometres from Maiduguri, Borno state capital.

The passengers were en route to Maiduguri before they were attacked by suspected Boko Haram terrorists around 10pm on Sunday.

According to reports, the passengers had stopped over at Auno as a result of the blockade of the road into the state capital by the military operatives after they missed the curfew.

Many persons, including women and children, were also reportedly kidnapped during the attack.

Dogo Shettima, an aide to Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State confirmed the killing and destruction of property during the attack.
