Nigerians were left shocked today after it was revealed that insurgent group Boko Haram had murdered over 2000 people in the town of Baga.
According to BBC correspondent Busa Bukar, the insurgents burnt the town after capturing the military base.
According to Bukar, the town is now non-existent, as the residents who managed to survive the massacre have fled.
Presidential aspirant Muhammad Buhari has meanwhile condemned the incident, saying it has to end.
“Terrible news from Baga. My heart is broken as the details come in. My thoughts and wishes are with the families. This needs to end – GMB.”
