Terrorists now executing old people
Residents of Gwoza in Borno State have said that the insurgents gathered some old people and executed them with guns.
“What they are doing now is to assemble the aged people — both men and women ... and then they just open fire on some of them,” vigilante spokesperson, Muhammed Gava told AP.
Gava also reportedly stated that more than 50 people had been killed at Government Day Secondary School in Gwoza.
The reports were confirmed by a fleeing villager who stated that more elderly people were being gathered and shot at Uvaghe Central Primary School.
The reports are yet to be confirmed by Nigerian military authorities.
