No fewer than 25 people, among them 17 members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) on their way to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, to attend the Aparty’s stakeholders meeting/congress, have been slaughtered by suspected Boko Haram terrorists in separate attacks in Gwoza council area and along the Maiduguri‑Biu road.

Sources said: “About 18 delegates of the APC who were on their way to attend a second stakeholders meeting slated for Sunday (yesterday) were ambushed by suspected terrorists.”

Our correspondent also learnt that seven motorists and passengers were shot dead by suspected terrorists along the Maiduguri‑Biu road a few metres away from Gwargube village.

The Maiduguri‑Biu road has become a death trap in the past few weeks, as hardly a day passes without cases of road attacks by the terrorists, despite the presence of security operatives patrolling the road.

A member of the vigilante youth, a.k.a Civilian JTF, who did not want his name to be mentioned, said on telephone: “A group of terrorists, yesterday, laid ambush to some motorists and passengers along the Maiduguri‑Biu road and killed many people before they invaded Gwargube village and solicited support from the villagers or risk deadly attacks.”

One of the survivors who attended the meeting told our correspondent that 18 of his kinsmen were slaughtered by terrorists few minutes after their vehicle had passed the scene of the attack.
