Information just reaching us from Borno State reveals that members of the radical Islamist group, Boko Haram have carried out another massacre in Gwoza town.

According to a woman who said she escaped from the area, no fewer than 75 men were slaughtered by the heartless terrorists group.

The escapee who spoke with Sunnews in Maiduguri, Borno capital on Thursday on condition of anonymity, said she and other women who have been held captive by the Boko Haram members managed to escape after a bomb explosion pulled down the house where she was held.

She said she escaped from Gwoza to a neighbouring community that was recently liberated by the Nigerian military in Adamawa State.

“A bomb blast occurred in a house where many women were held captive by Boko Haram and there was confusion everywhere. Two people died and many injured. The confusion provided opportunity for me and others to flee the town,”
she said.

The escapee said the ordeal of thousands of other people still held hostage by Boko Haram in Gwoza town, which is about 187 kilometres from Maiduguri were deplorable.

She said several women were kept in selected houses by the terrorists who often denied them of food for days, adding that life in Gwoza town is very terrible because residents live according to the dictate of their captors who uses Islamic tenets to rule.

Gwoza, a commu­nity southeast of Borno State is still under Boko Haram control. It was seized by the terrorists group in August last year, after a fierce gun fight with security operatives. The Isamic militants hoisted its flag and declared it an Islamic Caliphate as well as the headquarters of the sect.

No fewer that 12,000 people have been displaced in Gwoza where repeated attempts by the Nigerian troops to reclaim the town in the past has proved abortive because of the hilly environment, which provide several hiding places for the sect’s members to operate.
