*(via Newsy) – Boko Haram militants have killed more than 30 people in an attack on a northeastern Nigerian market.
The BBC reports the gunmen opened fire on traders and customers Friday, creating chaos in the busy marketplace.
Nigeria’s Leadership Newspaper writes, “The attack seemed to be a desperate quest by the insurgents to get food and related consumables, as they were said to have carted away food items and money from the traders.”
The Daily Post quotes a local who witnessed the attack, “Hundreds of traders and residents fled the market in confusion, while vehicles passing through the town were also making attempts to flee the town. It was such a confusion.”
