At least four Boko Haram suicide bombers struck a village near Maiduguri, the capital of Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno on Thursday night.

The bomb attacks on Mairanti village occurred at about 10 p.m. on Thursday, according to local television station Channels TV.

Authorities said no one else except the bombers was hurt, but advised residents to be vigilant.

In neighboring Cameroon, at least twenty huts were set on fire and a man was killed on Thursday night.

The attacks occurred in the locality of Tcherive in the Mayo-Sava department in Cameroon’s far north.

Boko Haram has killed tens of thousands of people in Nigeria and Cameroon as well as hundreds in Chad and Niger since 2009.

The militants have said western education and western way of life are evil. They are trying to create a caliphate along the Lake Chad Basin where true Islam would be practiced.
