Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, a faction of Boko Haram insurgents has killed at least 45 farmers in Rann village, Kala-Balge Local Government Area in Borno State.
Naija News learned that the terrorists invaded the village on motorbikes before attacking the farmers on their farms on Sunday.
It was learned that the gunmen encircled the farmers, and held them captive before they slaughtered them with machetes.
According to Zagazola Makama, a Counter Insurgency Expert and Security Analyst in Lake Chad, the bodies of some of the victims were dismembered while some were tied up and their throats slit by the terrorists.
He added that the victims were buried on Monday while the search for bodies of others who are yet to be accounted for is already on.
“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.
Meanwhile, the Convener of Concerned Nigerians movement, Deji Adeyanju, has accused security operatives of knowing the location of unknown gunmen wreaking havoc in the South-East.
He further said that the government and security agents know the unknown gunmen just like they know the people responsible for the Abuja-Kaduna train attack.
Adeyanju in a discussion with Daily Post claimed that the Federal Government enjoys accusing the Indigenous People of Biafra of the attacks in the region.
He condemned the Federal Government for not taking action against the gunmen but rather negotiating with them.
