A hostage executed by an 8-year old boko haram insurgent has been identified as Mr. Ropvil Daciya Dalep.
Daciya, 22, has been identified as a student of Biology Education in University of Maiduguri and was abducted on Thursday January 9, 2020 near the Borno State capital.
Kidnapped along with him is a 20-year old Zoology student of the same University, Miss Lilian Daniel Gyang and one other.
On Tuesday, the distressing video of Mr. Daciya’s execution was shared online by SITE Intelligence Group, an organization that tracks the activities of terrorists around the world.
In the video, the masked executioner, apparently a child terrorist soldier by his voice said the execution was an avengement of some “bloodshed” by Christians in Plateau State.
Standing behind his victim with an English pistol, the executioner chanted some words in Arabic before transiting to Hausa to say, “In particular, this is one among the Christians from Plateau State.
“We are saying to Christians, we have not forgotten what you have done to our parents and ancestors and we are telling all Christians around the world, we have not forgotten and will not stop.
“We must avenge the bloodshed that has been done like this one…”
