Group Reveal B.Haram Kills 200 Traders, Kidnap, Rape In Three Months

Over 200 market women in the North-East have been kidnapped, raped and, in some cases, killed by Boko Haram insurgents since January 2021, the Forum of North East Market Women said on Saturday.

Expressing sorrow that they had been out of business as a result of insecurity in the region, the forum appealed to the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd), to expedite action against the insurgents as some of its displaced members had fallen into drug use.

“We also wish to kindly appeal to the federal and state governments to urgently initiate programmes that will rehabilitate victims of drug abuse, especially women in the North-East,” the FNEMW said in a statement by its Chairperson, Mariam Bulama; and Secretary, Zainab Gadzama.

They also lamented the activities of Boko Haram in Borno, Yobe and Adamawa states, claiming that “our sources of livelihood have been taken away as a result of the insurgency.”
