0 2


Residents of   two Bura villages in   Hawul Local Government Area of Borno State now live in fear after   Boko Haram insurgents struck   and ordered non-Muslims to convert to Islam within 24 hours.

The insurgents were said to have invaded   Shaffa and Tesan Aledeh which are predominantly Christian communities on Wednesday evening.

Before they left unchallenged, they   vowed to return if their ultimatum was not met, and killed two retired army officers and an ex-policeman.

The insurgents were said to have killed one of the   former   officers     in Tesan Aledeh   before leaving for the nearby Shaffa   where they took the lives of the second retired   officer and the ex- policeman.

A source, who disclosed this to one of our correspondents on Thursday, said the developments caused fears among Christian communities along the Biu-Hawul-Garkida-Mubi Road.

He said, “There is widespread fear of possible attacks by the insurgents   among Christians in communities along this important road. People are worried that at the end of the ultimatum, the Boko Haram may also attack them.

“The Boko Haram members have started focussing attention on Christian communities in Southern Borno now; Yesterday (Wednesday), they attacked Tesan Alede and Shaffa in Hawul Local Government Area .

“They killed a retired police officer in Tasan Aledeh and warned the people of the community     to convert to Islam within 24 hours.

“The people   are now panicking because they are really helpless. First, there is no concentration of soldiers there. The soldiers only come in the afternoon and after patrolling for the day, they go back.

“Another thing is that there is no civilian JTF in the area. The people did not form the Civilian JTF because they were warned not to do so to avoid attracting the attention of the insurgents. Now they are harassing them.

“The Boko Haram members are openly addressing people in Shaffa and other Hawul communities. And because of the killing of the three ex-service men,   many people are relocating.”
