The Borno state government has announced the discovery of more than 35 decomposed bodies buried in Borno town.
The discovery of the bodies is coming four months after Borno town was rescued from Boko Haram.
The corpses were recovered from houses destroyed by the insurgents during their occupation of the town.
The town was in Boko Haram’s control for about 7 months, till it was liberated by the Nigerian army in April 2015.
Bama Local Government chairman, Ali Gujja, led a team of rehabilitation workers to the town on Thursday, where he said the Borno government would collaborate with the Federal Government to rebuild the towns and villages destroyed by insurgents.
“We’ve evacuated more than 35 decomposed bodies in Bama in the course of our clearing exercise since the state government has given a matching order for us to clean the ruins of the town so that rehabilitation and reconstruction can start in earnest,” Gujja said.
