Hungry terrorists slaughter Borno farmers for not meeting demands

By Paul Michael

Members of the Boko Haram terrorist group have killed three farmers, who were working on their farmlands in Gajeri village, Konduga Local Council of Borno State.

It was gathered that the farmers, who were killed on Wednesday, could not meet the food demands of the terrorists, who were running out of supply following military bombardments.

The dead bodies of the innocent farmers were said to have been recovered on the fringe of Sambisa Forest.

The Theatre Commander, Operation Hadin Kai (OPHK), Maj Gen Christopher Musa confirmed the incident while disclosing that the slain farmers had deep machete cuts and bullet wounds on their bodies.

Musa further stated that the terrorists, who rode on motorcycles, demanded food items before they could continue with their nefarious activities in Borno communities.

According to him, “when the farmers could not meet the demand for food, the bandits shot them. The insurgents also reportedly butchered two farmers, who survived the gun attack, with cutlasses.”

Meanwhile, Modu Aisami, a survivor, lamented that one of the farmers escaped with gunshot wounds while disclosing that the terrorists were suspected to have emerged from Gazuwa community in Bama Council Area.

Musa said Troops of 21 Armoured Brigade, Bama, in collaboration with Civilian JTF, on August 2, 2022, stormed a Boko Haram camp and neutralized scores of terrorists.

The OPHK sustained strategic counter-terrorism operations have fuelled “hunger and starvation” in the various Boko Haram camps in the Sambisa Forest and the Lake Chad region.

“The operations have forced them to resort to attacking villages and farms to get more foodstuff, money, and medicines among others,” Musa added.
