Terrorists from Boko Haram have slain 40 farmers in Rann, the capital of Borno’s Kala Balge Local Government Area.
On Sunday, May 22, terrorists on motorbikes allegedly encircled the victims as they were on their farms and slaughtered them.
Residents informed SaharaReporters that 60 people had been slain, with many more still missing.
“Boko Haram terrorists on motorcycles wielding weapons and machetes encircled their farms and began slaughtering them one by one. On Monday, around 50 bodies were buried in Rann. More bodies had been discovered as of this morning; the death toll now stands at around 60 “a local explained.
Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad, claimed that dozens of the fighters attacked the peasant farmers with machetes.
“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.
