Boko Haram fighters hacked to death 10 people in a remote village in northeast Nigeria, a local government official told AFP on Monday.
Maina Ularamu, local government chairman of Madagali, in the north of Adamawa state, said the attack happened early on Friday morning in Pambula-Kwamda village.
"The attackers went into the village around 4:00 am (0300 GMT) while residents were still asleep and used machetes to attack their victims," he added.
