Bama: a sight and stench of death after Boko Haram defeat

The Nigerian military forced out Boko Haram from Bama earlier this month. As they did so, locals who managed to escape said the Islamists set fire to homes, including the emir’s palace.

But clearly much worse happened — and the evidence is on the streets, beneath them and in the parched fields beyond.

Troops find the decomposing body of a man in a sewer, in the fetal position surrounded by trash and human waste. Soldiers cover their noses as more remains are found elsewhere.

“You can see dead bodies,” Bama resident Abdul Maliki Yakuba told AFP. “If you go around the town you can see dead bodies. Many people have been killed.”

    Boko Haram must be feeling “excluded”. Let’s send them tents and tag team JT and Muckhair to talk more of them into relocating to open door Canada become part of the “Cdn. family” our Gov’t brags about so much. We just can’t keep favoring Somalis as all cultures are equal. I’ve said before and repeat that the combo of African and Islam is a special kind of heinous barbaric.
