Suspected Boko Haram terrorists killed five internally displaced persons (IDPs) in the Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.

 

It was confirmed that the insurgents targeted the IDPs when they went to look for firewood outside Damboa City on Thursday, February 18.

 

A vigilante, Abu Damboa, who confirmed the Daily Trust incident, said that eight IDPs had been declared missing when they had not returned. He and his colleagues then began a search-and-rescue operation.

 

“We got the report to that some IDPs were missing. So, we swang into action but later found five of them beheaded two kilometres away from the scene where they were falling trees. It was disheartening to see fellow human beings slaughtered like animals, they were all displaced persons, “Abu said.

 

Humanitarian sources said that the victims have been buried according to Islamic rites.

Meanwhile, the chairman of Damboa Local Govt, Prof. A G Alooma, his vice, Ali M Kauji and their councillors on Friday, paid a condolence visit to the families of the victims.

 

After praying for the victims, Prof delivered foodstuffs and cash for the three days prayers.
