Abubakar Kyari, a senator-elect for the region said

‎We collected over 400 corpses from the streets and in shallow graves during our visit in Damasak," said Idris Karimbe, one of the volunteers who took part in the burial.
"The number of bodies we recovered this time around far exceeded the ones found last month," said another resident, Musa Bremah‎.
