“In the last one week, the attacks have intensified and persisted. A lot of lives have been lost.

“At the last count, we know that not less than 20 people have died and we are still counting because there are still people in the bush.

“I am not trying to be sensational but bringing the graphic truth to the Nigerian public to know that the misery is rising on a daily basis.
