Martha Bulus (right), hacked down by Boko Haram four days to her wedding.
The dreaded insurgents that have held the north east of Nigeria hostage for more than a decade, struck on Boxing Day in Borno State, when they slew a lady who was billed to wed on 31 December, 2019

The late bride to be, whose name was given as Martha Bulus, was killed by the insurgents alongside her chief bridesmaid.

According to reports, the lady and her chief bridesmaid were travelling from Gworza, a town in Borno State to Jimeta in neighbouring Adamawa State when they were both killed by Boko Haram on 26 December, 2019.

No details had been given by the insurgents as at the time of this report, as to the plausible reasons why the ladies were killed.

Boko Haram, a daredevil insurgency group has terrorised the north-eastern zone of the country for more than a decade. And efforts by the Nigerian military to defeat the group have so far yielded little results as they have continued to operate, laying ambush and killing soldiers in droves.

Last week, the governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Umara Zulum had cried out to the Nigerian government that the group was in firm control of three local council areas of the state where their flags have been hoisted. However, the authorities quickly debunked it.
