I have One-Week Ultimatum To Live—Borno Pastor Begs Buhari For Rescue From Boko Haram
Bulus Yakuru, a pastor who was abducted by the Boko Haram insurgents last Christmas Eve in Borno State, has cried out to President Muhammadu Buhari from the terrorists’ den, begging that he had been given a one-week ultimatum to live.
Yakuru, in a video recorded by the insurgents and released on Wednesday that he was in pain and would like to be reunited with his family members, church, and relatives.
The Boko Haram struck Pemi village in Borno, only about 20 Kilometres from Chibok, on December 24, 2020, during which the pastor was taken away.
Chibok was where the Boko Haram abducted hundreds of schoolgirls in 2014 – some of whom have yet to be released till date.
The terrorists in the video had started a countdown over Yakuru’s life, whom they promised to kill if their demands were not met.
They killed three nurses and a worker with the Action Against Hunger, a humanitarian organisation, last year, following similar threats and to the condemnation of both national and international human rights organisations.
