Report reaching Page 36, indicates that at least 5 Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, have been slaughtered in Damboa Local Government Area of Borno State.
The IDPs reportedly went in search of firewood outside Damboa town, when the incident happened.
According to a member of the local vigilante group, Abu Damboa, the IDPs were declared missing when they did not return.
Abu said that he and his colleagues then embarked on a search-and-rescue operation.
His words: “We got the report to that some IDPs were missing. So, we swung into action, but later found five of them beheaded, two kilometers away from the scene where they were falling trees.
“It was disheartening to see fellow human beings slaughtered like animals, they were all displaced persons.”
Humanitarian sources stated that the incident happened on Sunday afternoon, adding that the victims have been buried according to Islamic rites.
“Information received was that eight IDPs, who went in search of firewood outside Damboa town, some 6-8kms, were abducted.
“Five dead bodies out of the eight missing IDPs were recovered this morning”, a Humanitarian source revealed.
