Congressperson Ali Ndume of the APC-Borno South senatorial district has uncovered that individuals from the feared Boko Haram Terrorists group murdered 75 individuals from his locale in Gwoza LGA in one night.
He said this on Wednesday during a stakeholders’ gathering sorted out by Senate Committee on Special Duties and the North East Development Commission (NEDC) in the states capital Maiduguri.
The senator also said that he can’t go to his hometown because it is not safe.
“There was a time in my hometown, 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 standout cases,” .
The senator also gave credit to the military saying there are putting in their very best but also saying that the situation is overwhelming.
“Our security operatives are trying their bests, and we have to give it to them. But the situation is overwhelming. People are dying every day, either from attacks or by hunger. We have lost many lives here.
The Senator also talked about the issue of hunger in the state and gave credit to NGOs for their support.
