Capture

Up to 100 bodies have been found in a mass grave near the Nigerian town of Damasak, after troops from Chad and Nigeria liberated the locality from Boko Haram militants.

The mass grave of dozens of bodies, some beheaded, was found by Niger and Chad soldiers under a concrete bridge on one of the main roads leading out of Damasak.
Azem Bermandoa Agouna, a colonel of the Chadian army, told the AFT news agency that he had seen “about 100 bodies spread under a bridge just outside the town. There are heads here and bodies there, the mass grave has become like a termite mound.” Reuters says witnesses counted some 70 corpses.

It’s suggested that the massacre happened some time ago as some of the bodies were severely decomposed, while others were partially mummified by the dry desert air. The colonel said the atrocity might have occurred two months ago and added: “This is the work of Boko Haram.”
The imam of the town was also found among the dead people. Witnesses say there could still be more bodies, as the smell of decomposition around the town is quite strong.
The grave was found after Niger and Chad troops recaptured Damasak in an intensive ground and air offensive launched last Saturday.
When Boko Haram gained control over Damasak in November, its militants killed about 50 residents and forced another 3,000 to leave the town, according to the UN’s High Commissioner for Refugees.
This year Chad, Niger and Cameroon have united to destroy Boko Haram, because Nigeria had failed for years to do this independently. The operation was called “Mai Dounama”, after the name of a 13th-century emperor of Borno province in northern Nigeria.
The country has announced major recent gains achieved with the help of its coalition partners. Two of the three worst hit states – Yobe and Adamawa – have been declared “cleared,” and the last one, Borno, is planned to be liberated “within a month.”
Some 36 localities, including major towns such as Bama and Dikwa, have been recaptured, with just three said to be still in rebel hands.
The events are taking place ahead of presidential elections scheduled for March 28 in Nigeria, Africa’s most populated country and biggest economy. Incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan has been slammed for his government’s failure to stop the violence.
Over the last six years, Boko Haram has killed more than 13,000 people in their aim to establish an Islamic caliphate in northeast Nigeria. Their actions initially began as a campaign against Western education.

  1. Unfortunately nigeria has been an impunity land of actrocities since 1966 and this is because the UN never takes any nigerian terrorist or warlord to intl criminal court as it will implicate itself.The UN was indirectly involved in the fatal blockade and starving of three million biafran kids to death, and its silence as nigerian jets staffed biafran civilian markets.Soviet russia was also involved and it was really ruled from the west using yiddish puppets, britain was involved,,egypt supplied pilots for russian illyushin jets,,,america clapped and aided,the vatican was also involved indirectly.The impunity was such that young steve jobs later of apple computers gave up ceremonial christianity and several conscientious irish catholic priests resigned.Its on record,,they cant muzzle facts.Now u see why terrorists have a field day in nigeria.No one can take them to ICC.They are all guilty.Thats why war criminals like gowon,adekunle.murtala etc walked free and the impunity continues ad infinitum,, ad nauseam as a sordid unspeakable situation above the law was created ab initio

  2. We Africans our destiny’s is in our own hands. If will can not stand up to take what belongs to us then our unborn children will face sesame.our politician’s have chosen to be fuels.Nigeria is one of the biggest hope for all Americans but leaders chose to make the hope of Africans hopeless. Until we Africans chose to unit as one nations just like American..

  3. BOKO HARAM IS GOVERNMENT & GOVERNMENT IS BOKO HARAM

    Zola has said it all. USA, UK, Russia, United Nations – Stop crying fouls when it is not your interest only. Be sincere within yourselves before asking others to be Sincere.

    How did Mashall Harry died??? How did Bola Ige died?? How did Dele Giwa died?? How did MKO Biola died?? How did Chuba Okadigbo died?? How did Gen. Abacha died?? How did Mirriam Abacha died?? HOW DID 3MILLION South-Easterners died?? If Boko Haram is evil, Nigerian Government is eviler. United Nation is Devilish!!!

    We should stop mourning the living while they are still breathing. Nigerian Government mourns the living by denying them what befits them and giving it to the few RICH POLITICIANS!! That’s mourning and GEJ is the Chief Mourner. WHAT A SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
