Internally Displaced Persons from Gwoza have appealed to the Military High Command to undertake an operation within the Bayan Dutse area of Gwoza to flush out the insurgents and bring back peace to their homeland.
In an open letter written to President Muhammadu Buhari on their behalf by five community leaders, the IDPs stated that if only the Bayan Dutse area would be attacked, all the Boko Haram insurgents hiding there would be flushed out and peace would be restored.
They said “in line with the persistent call by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai that anyone with credible information should come forth and assist the military, we wish to mention the following villages as being Boko Haram infested, with some captives among them”.
They listed the villages as: Boko Sanawa, Ngoshe, Gavva, Kunnde, Amuda, Agapalwa and Attagara.
Others are Chinene, Chikide, Arboko, Pege, Kughum, Klala in the mountain, Hembe in the mountain, Gathagure in the mountain, Guduf in the mountain, Sabon garin Kunnde, Kirawa and Barawa.
According to them, some of the IDPs that went to the area recently discovered that most of their houses had been vandalized.
The letter, which was signed by Mohammed Abubakar Kulkwa, Audu Duwara, Bukar Ndakva, Daniel Dahwara and Bitrus Katsala implored the President not to disregard their plea because it was the only sure way to conquer the terrorists.
