Suspected supporters of Boko Haram allegedly decapitated 43 farmers in Borno state.
The attack occurred on Saturday evening, November 28, in Zambarmari, a village less than 20 km from Maiduguri, the capital of the state, according to HumaAngle.
The tweet reads:
”Boko Haram beheads 43 farmers in one of the most horrific mass murders in the history of the insurgency. HumAngle learned the barbaric incident happened this evening in Zabarmari, less than 20 km from Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.
The bodies of the 43 victims, all of whom had their throats slit, arrived Zabarmari. Residents, however, insisted they would not be buried until the state governor saw their bodies. Zabarmari is located in Jere LGA, approximately 20 km from the garrison city of Maiduguri.”
According to a story by BBC Hausa, Kano-based lawyer Bulama Bukarti says that when they were targeted, farmers were harvesting their rice produce.
