Boko Haram Kills Nigerian Air Force Officer

Dreaded Boko Haram insurgents have shown they are willing to kill anyone that comes against them as seen in a disturbing video shared by Sahara Reporters of a Nigerian Air Force officer being gruesomely murdered by Boko Haram sect in Borno state.

The victim, who was extensively interrogated before his gruesome killing, identified himself as Umar Abubakar, disclosed he was a member of Section 9 of the Nigerian armed forces engaged in counter-insurgency measures against Boko Haram.

The sect after killing and beheading the deceased, paraded with his head as they jubilated as one of them used a mobile phone to film the gory scene.

In the video, the insurgents asked their victim to state his monthly pay to which he replied N40,000. He also disclosed that his commanding officer was a 2nd lieutenant.

The insurgents displayed their victim’s identity card, chanting that the world should know that Allah had given them an enemy.

One of the  sect’s leaders questioned the deceased in the video saying: “So you were sent to kill Boko Haram? And you are serving the state instead of Allah? We are members of Jama’atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda’awati Wal-Jihad and Allah has given us an infidel today”.

The Nigerian Air Force officer thinking his proclaiming himself as a Muslim of Jama’atu Izalal extraction would save him from being killed was, however, wrong as the insurgents, who spoke Hausa mixed with Kanuri, turned down his plea.

Their leader said: “No amount of prayers will save you, we will judge you according to the Quran.”

To the chants of Allahuakubar, the insurgents decapitated the hapless officer while leaving their victim’s headless body on on the ground in a pool of blood, his hands tied with a rope.

Boko Haram, a terrorist group, has caused havoc in Nigeria, especially in the Northern states, through a wave of bombings, assassinations and now abductions.

Borno State has been under several attacks by the insurgents since the beginning of the year with hundreds of people left dead while several injured.

The sect, who has claimed responsibility for several attacks, has continued to carry out incessant attacks on Borno communities, despite the state of emergency in the area, imposed by the Federal Government.

On July 22, it was reported the sect, on Saturday, 19th July, killed no fewer than 60 people at Gaidamgari village in Bama local government area of the state.

On July 18, it was reported that the sect attacked Damboa in Borno State, killing several people and also murdered a pastor of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Taiwo Dokun, members of the church in Dille, Borno State

On July 1, a bomb explosion occurred in Maiduguri, Borno State, which left 18 people dead and 55 severally injured.

However, the most vicious terrorist attack of the year was abduction of over 200 Chibok school girls on April 14 in Borno State. The majority of the victims are yet to be freed.
