Boko Haram in a fresh attack has reportedly killed 30 or more people on transit abducting other 30 women and children after the Nigerian Army claimed they have concerned the feared Islamic terrorist group.
According, to a report, the latest Boko Haram attack took place at Auno, a town that is 20 kilometres away from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
A detail report from Dogo Shettima, who’s Special Assistant to Borno Governor, Babagana Zulum, shows that the travellers were ”gruesomely murdered, and 30 women including children, were kidnapped, as Boko Haram insurgents unleashed mayhem in the state on Sunday, February 9, 2020.”
Mr Shettima alleged that the Boko Haram insurgents left about 18 cars or more burnt at the scene of the attack.
According to Mr Shettima, the state governor, Babagana Zulum has visited the scene of the attack where he pledged the state and federal government’s commitment to end the Boko Haram insurgency in the country.
Nigeria’s Chief of Army Staff, Tukur Buratai has furnished another excuse why the Nigerian army has not been able to wipe out the terrorist group who launched a killing attack on the Nigerian citizen since 2009.
The Army chief said, Boko Haram leaders and recruiters currently live in communities and also mix with the local population while adding that the terrorists have been able to operate for many years because of their mode of operation; use of propaganda and hardcore ideology.
It’s not clear if the Nigerian Army chief is invariably saying that the Boko Haram insurgency can never be defeated since they have a tough strategic mode of operation that has defeated the intelligence of the Nigerian Army.
If not so, Nigerians await a statement of hope for the future against this ”death threat” as they are tired of seeing and reading about lives been snatched by the Islamic terrorists.
