Boko Haram militants have attacked three villages in north-eastern Nigeria, leaving 30 people dead and 20 wounded, according to vigilantes. Mustapha Karimbe, a civilian helping the Nigerian military fight the Islamist group said the militants invaded Warwara, Mangari and Bura-Shika in Borno state, slaughtering their victims before setting the villages on fire. 
News of the attacks was slow to emerge due to poor communication as a result of the destruction of telecom masts in the area in previous Boko Haram raids. Musa Suleiman, another vigilante, said 20 people were killed in Warwara. He said the attackers killed six people in Bura-Shika and another four in Mangari.
Since 2009, the jihadists have killed thousands in bombings and shootings in their bid to create an Islamic state in Nigeria.
