Twenty ladies wearing mini skirts and trousers were yesterday slaughtered in their separate homes in the metropolis by yet to be identified terrorists suspected to be Boko Haram members.
This is coming barely 24 hours after over ten people were slaughtered in Maiduguri.
The slaughtering of these twenty different ladies, our correspondent gathered, took place in the early hours of yesterday precisely at about 1 to 2am when most of residents were still asleep in their houses due to the curfew imposed by state government.
A source told our correspondent that the most hit areas were Mary wards, few meters away from the University of Maiduguri, one of the places accommodating students of the institution living off-Campus due to accommodation shortage.
Also affected according to investigation, were ladies living close to the black spots areas of Gwange, London Chiki, Abbagaram, Kaleri areas where series of killings and bomb blasts had occurred in the past, killing JTF officers.
As a result of the development has seen the Joint Task Force, Operation ‘Restore Order’, Friday, place huge bounties on several suspected leaders and members of Boko Haram.
This recent development has left many baffled, as many have believed that most of the daily killings in Borno were targeted at men and security agents only.
When contacted on phone, both the JTF spokesman, Lieutenant Colonel Sagir Musa and the Police Commissioner, Mr. Yuguda Abdullahi said that they are not in Maiduguri, the state capital to confirm the incident.
But a top JTF Commander said, he had directed his men to the affected areas yesterday morning to evacuate the remains of over twenty girls slaughtered within the Maiduguri metropolis.
