Reports from Kala Balge Local Government Area of Borno State have disclosed how Boko Haram fighters raided the community Sunday and slaughtered over 40 innocent farmers.
The farmers were killed, and some of the bodies were dismembered while some were tied up and their throats slit by the terrorists.
Hon. Zainab Gimba, the federal lawmaker representing the area, confirmed the traumatic incident to the BBC in an interview.
A counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama, stated that the fighters flooded the community en masse and attacked the peasant farmers with machetes.
He added that “over 40 farmers were killed and some of the bodies were dismembered while some were tied up and their throats slit by the terrorists.
“The victims were buried on Monday with residents saying many others are yet to be accounted for,” Zagazola said.
The Daily Reality gathered that those killed had been buried according to Islamic rites, and the search for more bodies continued.
