Borno: How Boko Haram Terrorists Butchered 75 Elderly People In One Night – Sen. Ndume
The Senator representing Borno South in the National Assembly, Senator Ali Ndume has revealed how Boko Haram slaughtered 75 elderly people in his hometown of Gwoza area of the state.
Ndume stated that Boko Haram terrorists dragged the elders to the town’s abattoir and slaughtered them like animals.
This was made known on Wednesday by the lawmaker during a stakeholders’ Senate Committee on Special Duties and the North East Development Commission (NEDC) in Maiduguri.
Ndume complained that the activities of the insurgents had stopped him from traveling home. Also, aside from the elderly, the insurgents killed several young residents.
But, the level of insecurity in Gwoza had overwhelmed security operatives, he pointed out.
He said: “Even as a serving senator, I still cannot go to Gwoza my home town because it is not safe.
“Our security operatives are trying their bests, and we have to give it to them. But the situation is overwhelming.
“There was a time in my home town Gwoza, that about 75 elders most of whom I know personally were dragged by Boko Haram to the town’s abattoir and slaughtered like animals. Only two persons survived because their bodies were covered with other people’s blood and the assailants thought they were dead.
“In the same Gwoza, Boko Haram had in a single day lined up young men and summarily shot them dead. These were just some stand out cases.”
