Boko Haram kills 12 farmers in Borno

Boko Haram on Saturday hacked 12 farmers to death as they worked on their fields in the volatile Borno State, civilian militia told the Agence France-Presse.
They came in two trucks and attacked the farmers with machetes outside Kalle, a remote village 17 kilometres outside the state capital Maiduguri.

“They used machetes to kill their victims who were working on their farms.

“So far, we have recovered 12 dead bodies from the fields and nearby bush,” vigilance group leader, Babakura Kolo, said.

The militants had guns but did not use them so as not to attract the attention of troops in nearby Molai village, said another vigilance group leader, Ibrahim Liman.

“When the farmers saw them pulling over close to their crop fields, they all ran in different directions but the terrorists pursued them,” Liman said.

It was not clear which of the two Boko Haram factions was behind the attack.

The jihadist faction loyal to Abubakar Shekau is notorious for deadly attacks on civilian targets.
