No fewer than 17 people have been killed, after a bomb was mistakenly fired by the Nigerian Air Force on Sakotoku village in Damboa local government area of Borno state

Naija News learnt that among those killed were women, and children who were said to be playing under mango trees.

The air force, military sources said, they had acted on information that Boko Haram insurgents were gathering around the village on Thursday.

The supposed target, according to a source, was an area in Korongilum, a neighbouring village 12 kilometres away where suspected Boko Haram insurgents had gathered earlier.

We don’t know if they didn’t communicate well with the land troops as the air force jet fired that bomb on the village,” one of the sources said.

Seventeen people were killed, mostly women and their children playing under mango trees. Many were also injured and have been taken to the 25 army brigade in Damboa, and those with critical injuries were taken to Maiduguri.”

Some of the villagers whose houses were destroyed have found their way to Damboa.
