Suspected Boko Haram terrorists have shot dead a 35-year-old internally displaced person, Modu Malari, while picking firewood on a farm near the Dalori IDPs’ camp in Borno State.

Our correspondent learnt that Malari, an indigene of the Bama Local Government Area and father of six, was killed by the insurgents less than one kilometre from the camp.

It was gathered that he was a farmer and married to two wives in the Dalori IDPs’ camp.

Some of the displaced persons in the camp, under the care of a non-governmental organisation, Knifar Movement, took to Twitter on Friday to mourn the man.

One of the tweets read, “Malari, a husband of two, was shot dead by Boko Haram insurgents less than 1km from the camp. He was collecting firewood at the time.

“He survived Boko Haram attacks on Bama LGA and was arrested by the military and stayed in Giwa Barracks, Maiduguri, for seven months. We felt so much joy when he was reunited with his family. Now, Boko Haram has taken him away.”
