Nov 6, 2014 – Nigerian Soldiers Killed 16 Arrested Civilians Mistaken For Boko Haram In Yobe

16 villagers arrested by Nigerian soldiers in Yobe State were found dead few hours later with bullet wounds, community leaders said today, demanding an inquiry.

Troops rounded up 17 people, including an imam, from the Dogo Tebo area of Potiskum in Yobe state as they left a mosque after morning prayers on Wednesday.

Residents and hospital staff said the bodies of all but the imam were later found in the morgue at the Potiskum General Hospital.

“All the bodies have gunshot wounds on them,” said a nurse, who asked not to be identified because he was not authorised to speak to the media.

The bodies had been brought in by soldiers and were formally identified by community leaders and residents from Dogo Tegbo, he told AFP.

One resident, Tukur Danu, said the cleric was not among the dead and added: “We are worried about what they could do to him.”

  2. How can you kill innocent people who are not armed? Something need to be done otherwise this will spark noise and chaos. Those soldiers have to apologies to the public for acting unprofessional.

    • so you are happy bc they are muslim? dispite the reports indicates 17 innocent people. So let me pray for u that non muslims armed robbers to ****** or not but ****** or a government forces stray bullet & i also ***** pain or happy

  3. From the above comments, its obvious that you guys is not following the trends of event about boko haram and there political tricks with bias comments; when ever the Military arrest or Kill Boko Haram Members, the Muslim Folks will say the military arrested,detain and kill innocent Hausa/fulani herdsmen, or innocent villagers just like the news is saying above.
    But when ever the Boko Haram attack the the Military they will Propagate it on the media so much just to paint the military/present Govt bad and in-effective before Nigerians. If i have my way it should be an eye for an eye thing.#MyOpinion.

  4. Dat is de problem of our Nigerian soldiers. Ve dey being capturing Boko haram so easly lik dat? Our Nigerian soldiers cnt fight boko haram but wen it comes 2 innocent peple dey can kill lik ants.

  5. Why do these men in uniform call themselves soldiers while they are not capable of protecting the country from INTERNAL civilian insurgents, will they be able to protect our borders from EXTERNAL invaders???
