Boko Haram militants are said to have rampaged through the village of Kuda in Adamawa state, killing at least 18 women at a funeral. During the attack, which took place Thursday, at about 5pm local time, houses were also set on fire amid the random shooting. Reports say some women, who were present at the funeral are still missing. The numbers of those killed have not been independently confirmed by the authorities. Kuda is close to the Sambisa Forest, which is known to harbor majority of the Boko Haram militants. The same village was last attacked by the militants in February.
