Written by News Desk on November 6, 2023
To security related concerns, Boko Haram terrorists have killed ten farmers in some communities in Borno State.
Some of the farmers died in Kwashabe – a rice plantation where over 40 farmers were killed three years ago in the Zabarmari district of Jere Local Government Area, others were killed in Kakut village in Mafa Local Government Area. According to one of the farmers in Zabarmari, trouble started when three farmers were kidnapped on Friday and a ransom of N600,00 was being demanded for each of the three kidnapped persons. Being unable to extract more money than the N120,000 paid for the three persons, the terrorists abducted fifteen more farmers who were working on their farmlands on Saturday only for a rival terrorist group to come attempting to kidnap the fifteen farmers. A gun battle ensued among the two factions leading to the escape of thirteen farmers as one person was shot dead in the gun battle while another sustained injuries.
