Nigeria: Motorists Ambushed By Boko haram In Borno, Scores Killed

Motorists plying the Maiduguri – Dambao – Biu road yesterday were ambushed by suspected members of the Boko Haram sect, leaving a number of people dead.

Neither the Police nor the Army have come out with any statement regarding this, neither have they confirmed of dispproved the news. Eye witness account however says that most of the people killed and injured were not killed by Boko Haram but by the military personnel that came on the scene.

According to the witness, he said the army opened fire on commuters fleeing into the surrounding bushes, killing and injuring many of them.

“Most of the passengers killed and injured were not by Boko Haram sect, but by military escorts who opened fire on fleeing passengers into the bush, mistaking them as escaping terrorists.

“It is unfortunate that our road is not safe today (Saturday morning) as some Boko Haram terrorists laid ambush on the road. It is regrettable that during the ambush and exchange of gunfire between military escorts and the terrorists, many passengers took to their heels into the bush, and most of them fell victim in the cross fire.

“I cannot ascertain the number of those killed as I managed to escape with my passengers. But I learnt that scores of people were killed or injured.”
