Soldiers repel Boko Haram attacks in Maiduguri

Nabbed Boko Haram Terrorist

Soldiers in Niger killed 14 unarmed civilians after mistaking them for Boko Haram militants during a patrol in the remote southeast of the country, a senior regional official said on Thursday.

He said two of the dead were from Niger and the rest from neighbouring Nigeria, where Boko Haram is based and from which the jihadist group has sometimes carried out cross-border attacks into Niger, Cameroon and Chad. Details of how the operation unfolded and why the civilians were there were not clear.

"I am calling on other Boko Haram insurgents to lay down their arms, embrace peace and join the society", the insurgent, who pleaded anonymity said while dismissing the group's activities as unIslamic.

Thousands of people have been displaced and many areas are off-limits.

Recall that NAIJ.com reported on Wednesday, that army chief, Lt-Gen Tukur Buratai, said that the release of the second batch of the 82 Chibok girls recently was a political decision and not one taken by the Nigerian Army. Abadam is a village located in the red zone and has been prohibited for a very long time.

"Fifty seven out of the 70 surrendered Boko Haram insurgents had been profiled". He stressed that the 700 Boko Haram fighters earlier said to have given up their struggle were actually those that indicated their intention to surrender. Just three days ago, suspected militants killed nine people and kidnapped dozens more there, including children.
