The Nigerien and the Chadian troops on Saturday found a mass grave in the Damasak area, a town in Borno state. The town was recently recaptured by the coalition of the Lake Chad basin made up of Nigeria, Chad, Cameroon and Niger.
The troops said they discovered over 70 bodies in a mass grave. The grave found in Damasak, a town about 200 km from Maiduguri the capital of Borno state is a trading community bordering Nigeria and Niger Republic. Most of the victims in the mass grave were found in Damasak and some had the heads severed from their bodies and most could not be identified because the bodies were decomposing. According to Chadian Army Col. Azem Bermandaa Agoum, ‘about 100 bodies spread under the bridge just outside the town’.
The Islamist terror group, Boko Haram have been in control of the town for several years and since the coalition began its operations they have successfully degraded the ability of the murderous sect to capture new towns. In the last one month they have been on the run and are causing mayhem as they abandon the recaptured towns.
President Jonathan has assured that in the next one month, Boko Haram will be completely wiped out of the territories. According Jonathan ‘we never expected that Boko Haram will build up that kind of capacity’. He said we under- rated them.
“To fear the world US has led for the better part of a century, abandon the ideals we have advanced around the globe and refuse the obligations of international leadership… for the sake of some half-baked, spurious nationalism cooked up by people who would rather find scapegoats than solving problems is unpatriotic. “
