The slaughtering of people in Maiduguri now seems to be the norm as less than 24 hours after over ten people were slaughtered there, twenty ladies in mini skirts and trousers were again, yesterday, slaughtered in their homes in different parts of the metropolis by yet to be identified slayers.
This ugly trend in Maiduguri is unique in the sense that many believed that most of the daily killings in Borno are only targeted at men and security agencies.
The slaughtering of about twenty different ladies reportedly took place in the early hours of Friday, precisely at around 1 to 2am when most residents were fast asleep in their homes due to the curfew in place.
According to a source, the worst hit areas were Mary wards, few meters away from the University of Maiduguri; one of the places where students of the institution live off-Campus due to accommodation shortage on campus.
Also affected, were ladies living close to the black spot areas of Gwange, London Chiki, Abbagaram and Kaleri areas where series of killings and bomb blasts had occurred in the past, killing JTF officers.
A top JTF Commander said, he had directed his men to the affected areas yesterday morning to evacuate the remains of over twenty girls slaughtered within the Maiduguri metropolis.
