Boko Haram slaughtering people in Bama – Borno senator
Senetor Ahmed Zannah, who is representing Borno Central at the National Assembly, raised an alarm that Boko Haram had started massacring young men in its drive to expand its caliphate in the North and that the insurgents had taken over Bama, which is less than 78 kilomitres from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
The Senator, who is a native of Bama, spoke just as Reuters news agency reported that the Islamist fundamentalist sect seized Bara, a community in Yobe State. Zannah said;
As I am speaking to you, Bama has been captured and the insurgents are on the prowl for any male on sight. Everyone is a target as long as you are a male but for now, women and children are being spared. Both the military and Borno State Government are lying to Nigerians. To prove that I am the one misinforming the public, they should take journalists to the town to cross-check the fact.
He advised the military authorities and the Borno State Government to take the media to Bama to cross-check his claims on Tuesday that Bama had been captured by Boko Haram.
