UNIMAID Lecturers Spend 69 Days With Boko Haram

Four lecturers of the University of Maiduguri, Borno State, who were abducted by Boko Haram in the Magumeri area of Borno State during an oil exploration have spent 69 days in captivity.





This is just as the Defence Heaquarters, Abuja, said the military was still making efforts to rescue the lecturers. The Director, Defence Information, Maj. Gen. John Enenche, said on Sunday that “intelligence was still being processed to bring the victims back and alive.”


The lecturers had been abducted on Tuesday, July 25.


One of the abducted lecturers, identified as Dr Solomon Yusuf, had on September 5, reportedly written a letter to his wife, Hannatu, from the terrorists’ den which was obtained by an online medium, Sahara Reporters. He lamented their anguish in captivity and urged the Federal Government to free them from the terrorists.


But the DHQ spokesman, Enenche, said the military was being careful, saying Boko Haram might use the lecturers as human shields. He said, “Efforts are on. When we get information, we convert it to intelligence. The ultimate is that the Federal Government and the military are doing as much as possible to ensure that these people come out alive.

They left those to be rescued to turn to "dancing pythons"

"...effort are still on to rescue the remaining Chibok girls". That's an excerpt from Buhari's independence day speech. I did not hear him make mention of these lecturers. Yet his government is dancing all round the country unlawfully annihilating innocent citizens who have not as much as lifted a finger against anyone.
