Thirteen days after Governor Babagana Zulum rebuked and shouted at soldiers over alleged extortion, the residents of villages along Damaturu-Maiduguri have lamented, wailed and cried over the continuous attack launched by Boko Haram insurgents against the people of these communities.

WITHIN NIGERIA had earlier reported that a video showing Borno state governor, Babagana Zulum condemning, shouting and rebuking soldiers manning Damaturu-Maiduguri road in the state on Monday afternoon has emerged.

According to Cable reports, one of the residents alleged that they were left at the mercy of the terrorists by soldiers after Governor Zulum shouted at the soldiers

He said; “The soldiers have left and we are on our own now.

“Since that day that the governor shouted at soldiers, it appeared all of them left. After that day, there have been attacks on our villages on daily basis. Travellers are being kidnapped every hour and all the military roadblocks are no more there, because these attackers always go without being confronted by the military.”

Speaking on the same incident, another resident who prefers anonymity disclosed that many are leaving their communities in the area, in search of safety in Maiduguri and Damaturu.

He said;

“Villagers in Auno, Jakana and Benisheik are fleeing in their hundreds to Maiduguri. The insurgents attack at least twice daily in these villages.

“It is also sad that nobody is talking, except the governor. The elders of Borno are not talking. The NSA, chief of staff to the president, NNPC GMD and EFCC chairman are all from Borno and none of them is saying anything about this sustained attacks on Damaturu-Maiduguri road. We are really scared right now, and that is why our people are running for safety.”
