The Borno Government on Monday said about one million private houses had been destroyed by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in the few years of their terror campaign in the state.
Gov. Kashim Shettima disclosed this while receiving former President Olusegun Obasanjo in Maiduguri.
“Tens of thousands of our innocent citizens were brutally killed; married and single women were abducted and raped; our sons were forced into becoming child-soldiers;
“More than 2 million citizens were internally displaced in camps and host communities in Maiduguri alone.
“Others fled to different parts of Nigeria including Lagos, some fled to neighbouring countries of Niger, Chad and Cameroon,” Shettima said.
