Dreaded terrorist group, Boko Haram has today surprisingly released 192 of the 218 people they adopted at Kakarko town in Yobe State.
This was confirmed by a politician Alhaji Goni Katarko, who reunited with four of his five family members who were abducted by the group.
He told Vanguard Newspapers that “They were so lucky to get lorry that conveyed them to Gazargana village were we picked them through the aid of military personnel. The military kept them in a camp and pleaded with us to leave them for security reasons.”
Malam Aysha is one of the released captives. She said that the insurgents asked them all to choose whether or not they were going to stay back and join them.
She said “many of us refused to accept their offer and the leader ordered that we should be taken out of the territory so that we can join the land of unbelievers out there. They took us to Wuron Yinwa village before one herdsman led us to where we got a lorry driver.”
