ICC Note: Boko Haram has left an entire village in ashes, raising Kimba, Nigeria to the ground in a Christmas day massacre where militants slaughtered 16 people and burned homes. The attack comes after a string of years where the Islamist extremist terrorists have intentionally targeted Christians on the day when they remember Jesus’ birth. Just days before the assault, Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari had declared Boko Haram “technically defeated.”
