Up to 150 people drowned in a river or were shot dead fleeing Boko Haram gunmen who raided a remote village in Nigeria's northeastern Yobe state, locals said Tuesday.Dozens of militants arrived on motorcycles and a car Thursday last week and opened fire, scattering terrified residents of Kukuwa-Gari. News of the attack was slow to emerge because the militants have destroyed telecom masts around the village, around 50 kilometers (30 miles) from Yobe State capital Damaturu, since the insurgency began in 2009 .
