Boko Haram Leader, Shekau Reveals Number Of Farmers Killed In Borno Farm

Abubakar Shekau, leader of the dreaded Islamic sect, Boko Haram, on Tuesday, revealed that the group killed 78 farmers and not 43.

Boko Haram attacked the farmers who were harvesting rice at Zabarmari community, in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State at the weekend.

Over 40 deaths were earlier reported and Governor Babagana Zulum told journalists that 43 farmers were killed.

However, in the video released on Tuesday, where Shekau boasted about the killing, the terrorist leader said they killed “at least 78 farmers”.

Basehitz Media had earlier reported that Shekau claimed responsibility for the killing, accusing the farmers of handing over their members to the Nigerian army.

He warned that those in the habit of sharing intelligence on the sect’s activities with the military will face the same fate.
