Boko Haram kill 11 in Nigeria who ‘escaped forced conscription’
Suspected Boko Haram militants killed 11 men overnight Friday in northeastern Nigeria, dragging them from their homes and shooting them for escaping forced conscription by their group, residents said.
“Boko Haram fighters killed 11 people in our village (Miringa) this morning. The men had fled Gwargware village in (neighbouring) Yobe state to seek refuge in our village after Boko Haram tried to force them to join their ranks,” said resident Isa Mshelia.
Baballe Mohammed, another resident, said the gunmen came to the village around 1.30am on Friday.
They “picked 13 men from selected homes and took them to the Eid prayer ground outside the village where they opened fire on them,” he said, adding two managed to escape.
