ISWAP Marks UN Chief’s Visit To Maiduguri With Killings

The Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) has reportedly killed three natives in Kautikari ward of Chibok Local Government Area on Tuesday while Antonio Guterres, the United Nations Secretary-General, was paying a courtesy visit to Babagana Zulum, the Borno State Governor at the Government House in Maiduguri.

According to report, the ISWAP terrorists who have attacked Kautikari severally within the past few months, stormed the village around 6 pm causing many of the villagers to run into Sambisa forest, where ironically the terrorists are camped, for safety.

A resident identified as Adamson, gave account of the terrorist invasion as follows:

“The attack started at 6:20 pm this evening (Tuesday). They came on their motorcycles and started to shoot randomly from all angles.

“The villagers ran to the bush for safety but the bush is Sambisa forest and that is where the Boko Haram insurgents are living. That village has been attacked more than ten times this year alone.

“There is no other village around there except the Sambisa forest and the people living there have never left their homes despite the attacks.

“According to what I was told by my source who is presently hiding in the bush, the terrorists shot one man dead in his car and then set the car ablaze with the dead body inside the vehicle.

“They also killed two others while also burning down several houses. But we cannot determine the level of damage or destruction now until in the morning when they are all back in their villages.”
