Insurgents Lay Seige To Borno Towns, Kill Father Of Ex Presidential Aide, Ahmed Gulak

The decomposed body of the father of former Presidential adviser on political matters, Ahmed Gulak, has been recovered three days after Boko Haram insurgents laid siege to many towns and villages in Adamawa State, allegedly operating the full version of Islamic law in the areas they captured.

Reports from Gulak indicated that the decomposed body of his father was found three days after he died in his residence, as nobody could attend to him after the town was deserted following the incursion of Boko Haram insurgents.



    Some of the trapped residents who escaped by the whiskers said the situation in the town was pathetic, as the insurgents had killed many residents, while they cut off the arms of others, adding that many others, especially the elderly, died due to absence of medical care.

    They also said many among the elderly people trapped in the town have died while trying to escape through the hills to neighbouring villages to get medical attention.

    They also reported that corpses had virtually littered the town and that pigs and dogs have had a field day feasting on them as no one could give them a befitting burial.


    Acting governor of Adamawa State, Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri, in a press statement issued by his spokesman Solomon Kumangar, commiserated with the families of the deceased.
