How Terrorists Killed 55 Iron Mongers In Borno In 3 Weeks – Police: At least 55 iron mongers have been killed by terrorists in Borno state in the last three weeks.
The revelation was made by the Commissioner of Police in the state, Abdu Umar on the side-line of a security stakeholders’ meeting on Saturday in Maiduguri.
The stakeholders comprised the police, the army, Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps and the Department of State Security, among others.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), the meeting was to proffer solutions to the incessant attacks on scrap metal collectors in the state.
Umar said the insurgents killed 32 scrap metal collectors at Modu village in Kala-Balge Local Government Area and murdered 23 others at Mukdala village of Dikwa LGA.
He said the victims sneaked into the forests 25km away from the towns without informing the security agencies for scrap metal collection.
Daily Trust reports that dozens of youths looking for a livelihood, especially in northern Borno had been killed by terrorists this year.
The CP said Governor Babagana Zulum directed security agencies to adopt proactive measures to stop the killings to forestall future occurrences of the incident.
The commissioner had also led other security heads and journalists to investigate some impounded trucks loaded with scrap metal at State Mechanic Workshop.
He said there were allegations that the scavengers were involved in vandalizing government and private properties in displaced communities.
