Barely fifty-six hours of killing eighty-one civilians in Borno, Boko Haram, Saturday, revisited the state, and engaged soldiers at checkpoint.
The terror group had invaded Zowo village on Tuesday and killed nothing less than 81 human beings. The attack also saw the killing of 23 animals which include: Cows, donkeys, goats and sheep’s. Dozens of women were reportedly raped, houses were burnt down and children abducted.
Recall that President Muhammadu Buhari, charged the armed forces to sustain their “recent string of successes against the terrorists to extract a heavy price from the attackers, and bring back all those they kidnapped as well as a large number of cattle rustled.”
