Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) from Gwoza, Borno state, have written an open letter to President Muhammadu Buhari.
Families from Gwoza, Borno State, displaced by the violence of Boko Haram.
In the letter written on their behalf by five community leaders, the IDPs called on the military high command to undertake an operation within the Bayan Dutse area of Gwoza.
The displaced persons believe that if Nigerian army attacks the Bayan Dutse area, all Boko Haram terrorist hiding there will be flushed out and peace will be restored.
“In line with the persistent call by the Chief of Army Staff, Lt. Gen Tukur Buratai that anyone with credible information should come forth and assist the military, we wish to mention the following villages as being Boko Haram infested, with some captives among them,” the letter read in part.
