A number of villages in north-eastern Nigeria have been attacked by suspected Boko Haram militants, it has been reported.

Suspected Islamists killed at least 10 people in one attack.

The reports spoke of churches being attacked with bombs and guns near Chibok, the Borno State where 200 school girls were abducted in April.

The group's increasingly violent campaign has set in motion a state of emergency in northern Nigeria.

In one of Sunday's incidents, the militants apparently opened fire during an early morning church service in a village called Kwadakau, killing several people.

Local residents appealed for help.

A text message from a resident in the region reported an attack on another village, called Kautikari.

Quoted by the Premium Times paper, it said: "Massive attack on Kautikari now. All security agencies should be notified, and call for divine help now.”
