Boko Haram Kills 406 Nigerians In 36 Days [Timeline Of Attacks]
The Boko Haram insurgents group has reportedly killed at least 406 Nigerians with the 36 days of President Buhari’s administration.
The bloodshed is the worst since Buhari came to power in May, vowing to root out the insurgency that has claimed more than 15,000 lives.
The Nigeria army which in the last few weeks of the Jonathan administration recovered lost territories from the dreaded terrorist group seem to have gone to sleep leaving Nigerians at the mercy of the insurgents.
This puts to question the benefits of the territories recovered from the sect as suicide bombings and other forms of attacks had been stepped up in the past few weeks.
Few days into the end of the Jonathan administration, the terrorists staged a come back, but attacks have since then assumed a more alarming rate.
From mid last week, the militants have staged multiple attacks across restive Borno state, gunning down worshippers at evening Ramazan prayers, shooting women in their homes, and dragging men from their beds in the dead of night.
On Friday, locals said, the sect has killed nearly 200 people in 48 hours of violence.
Up to 50 armed men on motorbikes stormed the village of Mussa in the latest atrocity on Friday, shooting villagers and burning their homes, survivor Bitrus Dangana said. “They killed six people in the village and they chased the inhabitants into the bush, firing at them… 25 people were killed in the bush,” he said.
