Suspected Boko Haram militants executed 11 men overnight Friday in northeastern Nigeria, dragging them out of their homes and shooting them for escaping forced conscription by the armed group, residents said.
"Boko Haram fighters killed 11 people in our village (Miringa) this morning. The men had fled Gwargware village in (neighbouring) Yobe state to seek refuge in our village after Boko Haram tried to force them to join their ranks," said resident Isa Mshelia.
