Boko Haram still in charge in Bama as children, women die of hunger

Published by Daily Trust on Fri, 12 Sep 2014


The Bama Development Foundation (BADEFO) today said the Federal Government should be sincere in its utterances about happenings in Borno State, stressing that hundreds of women and children that were trapped in Bama town over ten days ago are dying of hunger and stress.The foundation said dead bodies of youths that were massacred by Boko Haram insurgents have decomposed on the streets because no one could bury them.Addressing a press conference in Maiduguri, today, Chairman of BADEFO, Mallam Mohammed A. Hassan said the Wednesday's utterance by Mr. Mike Omeri, the coordinator of the Federal Information Centre to the effect that Nigerian security forces have taken over Bama from the insurgents was not true.He said hundreds of youths have been killed by the insurgents, many others forced to join the Boko Haram in its fight against the Nigerian state while many others remain trapped in houses where they hid in ceilings.He said Nigerian security forces are yet to return to Bama after they left on Monday, 1st Sept, pointing out that the association has evidence to show that the soldiers are still in Konduga town, situated 38 kilometers to Bama from Maiduguri.'The association condemned in strong terms the war by the dreaded insurgents in recent past which continues without apparent measures to contain the activities of the sect, despite Nigerian military's relentless efforts.'Posterity will not forgive us as a community based organization that is always agitating for development within Bama Local Government to sit on the fence watching conflicting reports from both print and electronic media over the unfortunate situation our good people found themselves.'Since the day of the attack about 11 days ago, Bama, the second largest local government area in Borno State is under the custody and control of the dreaded Boko Haram sect. This is the whole truth and nothing but the truth. As a matter of fact, we are calling on the state and federal government to expedite action towards reclaiming Bama from the hands of terror as those in captivity are under serious trauma, starvation, distressed with serious degree of injuries.'Eleven days after the incidence, no search and rescue operation (was) conducted, no any damage has been assessed, but we are aware that security and welfare of the people is the fundamental obligation of any meaningful government,' he said.The association decried the siege on Gwoza, Ngala, Dikwa and some parts of Yobe and Adamawa States.
