Boko Haram insurgents are currently killing residents of Gwoza, a community in Borno state.
According to a source who confirmed the development to TheCable, the sect, looking at the rate at which it was losing territories to security agents in recent times, decided to embark on mass killings.
“They just decided to be slaughtering people who are in their captivity,” the source said.
“They said they would keep killing people until the soldiers arrive to take away the town from their control.”
Gwoza has been under the control of the sect since August 2014. Boko Haram declared the community as an Islamic caliphate weeks after the town was captured.
