An anonymous senior army officer, who pleaded his name not be announced sent a text to AFP saying that those men had been slaughtered by Boko Haram members.
“Probably Boko Haram terrorists slaughtered them…They (victims) are Nigerians ,” he said, without giving further details.
“The victims were living in a compound located at Bolori general area, Maiduguri Metropolis…,” said the JTF(Joint Task Force) statement.
“JTF troops rushed to the area/compound and saw the dead bodies and they were deposited at the mortuary Borno State Specialist Hospital,”
rumor has it that Boko Haram are planning an attack on the city again.
