‘As we speak, the soldiers have yet to pay our parents a visit to express their regret for their actions; only the police have done so.’ “You can’t just kill innocent girls and walk away,” he added, adding that justice must be served.

Another resident claimed that the soldiers shouldn’t have fired at the market because the Fulani men they were pursuing fled into the bush.

The victims’ photos were obtained by Daily Trust before their funeral prayer in the community.
