Civilians living in Babanki, Ngoketunjia Division of the North West region are caught between the proverbial devil and deep blue sea.
This comes after an attack by separatist fighters yesterday left many soldiers dead. In retaliation, the army is said to have visited the locality, molesting any civilians they could find.
Given the ongoing lockdown instituted by separatist fighters, civilians say they are trapped, as any action they take results in casualties.
