ABUJA – There is a new twist to the ambush of oil workers and some academics from the University of Maiduguri by Boko Haram as a new video has emerged purportedly of three of those abducted.
In the video sent to Channels Television, but which has not been independently verified, three men who said they were in the employ of the University of Maiduguri, appealed to the government for help.
Two of the men said they were lecturers in the Geology Department of the University and gave their names as Yusuf Ibrahim and Dr Solomon N. Yusuf. The third man identified himself as Haruna, adding that he was a driver with the university.
They also said they were part of the oil exploration team ambushed by Boko Haram on Tuesday (July 25), adding that the video was recorded on Friday, July 28, 2017. (Channels TV)
