How Pregnant Woman Was killed By Boko Haram While Giving Birth

This may indeed turn out to be the most gruesome attack of Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram.

According to Amnesty International, during the recent massacre of Baga, in Borno state, Boko Haram insurgents reportedly murdered a woman who was in labour.

The human rights group said on Thursday, January 15, that one of the witness to the attack on the town, revealed to some of its officials that the woman was shot by dead while in the process of giving birth.

The unidentified witness was quoted as saying: “Half of the baby boy (was) out and she died like this.”

The attack on the town, which began on January 3 is believed to have targeted civilian vigilantes assisting the Nigerian troops, Amnesty International says.

Another resident of the town, who managed to escape, said: “They killed so many people. I saw maybe around 100 killed at that time in Baga. I ran to the bush. As we were running, they were shooting and killing.”

A woman said: “I don’t know how many, but there were bodies everywhere we looked.”

Although the Nigerian Army has come out to say only 150 people were killed in the attack, AI insists that a lot more people than that were killed, going on to release satellite images to back its claims.
