The capture of Bama has led to the discovery of horrendous atrocities perpetrated by Boko Haram terrorists while their hold on the town lasted, and as they fled. “A large number of dead bodies was discovered in wells apparently of some of Boko Haram’s hostages or those who resisted them,” reports PRNigeria, quoting an undisclosed source.

Aside those whose bodies were thrown inside wells, others were also said to have been executed on the River Bama Bridge as the terrorists fled the town, the report said.

According to PRNigeria, “Civilians who have been cooperating with troops also narrated horrendous tales of the brutality of the terrorists while they held sway and ruled with iron hands, executing their own version of religious jurisprudence.

“An intelligence officer confirmed to that the cordon and search of the town was continuing while some persons in the town are also being interrogated by troops. Military and security sources confirmed to PRNigeria that as troops advanced on Bama the terrorists embarked on a killing and maiming spree.

“Military medical teams and emergency workers have been attending to survivors and evacuating internally displaced persons as screening of the town continues.”

“When contacted, Defence Spokesman, Major General Chris Olukolade, declined commenting on specific atrocities by the terrorists saying specific details will only be given after the ongoing thorough search of the town and its environments is concluded.

“With the dislodgement of terrorists from most of their locations in the North-East and especially Bama, mop up operations by troops have been revealing heart rendering atrocities perpetrated while the terrorists held sway in the towns and villages.”
