The Civilian Joint Task Force (CJTF) in Maiduguri has arrested two Boko Haram members who confessed to killing 35 people during the capture of Bama in 2014.
The Assistant Secretary of CJTF, Muazu Alhaji Misiya stated this while revealing photos of the terrorists on Sunday.
According to him, “Boko haram are dangerous. See this two Boko Haram from nguro Soye under bama local government. We arrested them in inside Maiduguri. When they captured Bama, they kill 35 people. Small one said he killed 32 and big one said he killed 3 people. Even in Maiduguri we have to put eyes please”
The Islamist terror group seized Bama, the largest town in Borno State, after a fierce battle with the Nigerian Army. The Army initially repelled the attack but the group returned with reinforcements to seize the town. They traveled in armoured trucks and first took control of the military barracks.
Soldiers and residents reportedly fled on foot, many of them walking all the way to Maiduguri, the state capital.
