The first photo showed 3 men with their hands tied and lying at the back with 3 gun men behind them.

The second photo showed the three felled bodies of the three men amidst thick smoke.

It was gathered that the three men were abducted on June 3, while they were traveling through Yobe State.

Confirming the incident in an interview with newsmen, Rev. Ibrahim Abako, the Secretary of the Yobe State Chapter of the Christian Association of Nigeria, CAN, expressed his dismay over the development and condemned the killings.

“On behalf of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Yobe State chapter, we condemn in totality the killing of three Christian youth along Damaturu-Biu Federal Highway,” he said.

Also reacting to the incident, a Christian group, Stefanos Foundation, said it was deeply saddened by news of the three men’s murder.

“That in 2024, terrorists are still boldly carrying out attacks and are even boldly broadcasting the images, is heart wrenching.

“While we continue to hope that the government will one day halt this madness, we will continue to mourn with the affected families and pray for God’s comfort in these difficult times,” the group added.

Meanwhile, security officials had yet to officially react to the incident as of the time of publishing this report on Tuesday.
