At least 30 ethnic Fulani herdsman were killed by Boko Haram militants in northern Nigerian last weekend when they raided the village of Alau in Borno state.

“One of the herdsmen escaped and confirmed to us that he is the only survivor,” Amadu Kusur, the northeast coordinator of the Fulani Miyetti Allah Association, said Thursday. The Islamist insurgents also kidnapped wommen and children and stole livestock in the attack on April 24 , Babangida Ali, the brother of one of those killed in Alau, said by phone.

While Nigeria says it’s making progress in the battle against Boko Haram, which has waged a violent seven-year campaign to impose its version of Islamic law on Africa’s most populous nation, the group continues to carry out massacres in remote areas and suicide bombings in towns and cities.
