According to Premium Times, Boko Haram
members who captured Mubi town in
Adamawa State as renamed the town as
Madinatul Islam, meaning the City of Islam.
Here’s how Premium Times reports it;
Contrary to the claim by the Nigerian military
that it is on top of the security challenge in the
commercial town of Mubi in Adamawa state,
the dreaded Boko Haram sect is consolidating
its position in the the captured town and has
indeed renamed it “Madinatul Islam” meaning
the city of Islam.
Aliyu Bala, one of the residents, who could not
leave Mubi at the time of the invasion of the
town by the insurgents, disclosed this in a
telephone chat with journalists. He said the
insurgents had taken complete control of the
town.
“They mounted check points and surveillance
at strategic locations, brandishing riffles but
asking us not to panic or run away,” Mr. Bala
said.
The trapped Mr. Bala said despite assurances
of safety given to them by Boko Haram,
thousands of the trapped residents have been
sneaking out preferring not to take any
chances.
Sunday Wugira, a Yola-based legal practitioner
who went to Maiha town to pick up his aged
parents that fled Mubi when it was captured
said, despite the assurance by the insurgents
several trapped residents are still fleeing,
including soldiers.
‘’I was in Maiha few hours ago,” he said “The
pathetic plight of the people I saw was simply
beyond imagination. We were in a commercial
bus when some fleeing soldiers said we must
adjust for them to get space in the bus to flee,
which we objected to. It’s unfortunate that
even soldiers joined civilians to run away.”
Meanwhile, Boko Haram have urged displaced
residents of captured communities of
Adamawa state to return home, assuring them
of safety in the “Islamic Caliphate.”
Four local governments: Michika, Madagali,
Mubi North and Mubi South of Adamawa
State, have fallen under the grip of Boko
Haram leading to the displacement of
thousands.
A resident of Uba town, Salisu Baba, said
normal activities have picked up in the
captured territories as Boko Haram enjoined
residents to go about their normal activities
and open their shops for business.
The resident added that the insurgents have
warned politicians not to try to hold any
election in the state, vowing to frustrate such
actions.
The terrorists also vowed to capture the entire
state soon.
“The insurgents have assured people of
freedom and have been telling shop owners to
open their shops threatening that anyone who
fails to open their shop will have it broken
into,” Mr. Baba said.
“Whenever the insurgents want any
commodity, they pay for it. This encouraged
meat sellers, tea sellers and others to open
for business,” another resident disclosed.
“They provided security during the market day
of Uba town last Thursday while promising to
continue to give marketers and residents who
come to the area utmost security as long as
they comply with Islamic rules.”
“They have opened one of the filling stations
belonging to A.A Garba in Uba town as
motorists’ troops to buy the commodity due to
high demand,” Mr. Baba said.
