“They also killed two of my uncles. While on the bush path, we discovered four other corpses burnt to death. They equally killed two imams, one of my neighbours and a close friend of mine. We just performed the funeral prayer for the 21 this afternoon (Wednesday). Initially, it was 20 corpses we buried first before we later discovered one more corpse inside the bush we buried him too,” he narrated.
