Suspected Boko Haram insurgents, in a convoy of gun trucks, attacked Kalle community of Borno State and killed 12 farmers, yesterday morning.
The farmers were working on their farmlands, when the terrorists burst out from the northern flank of Sambisa Forest near Molai community.A Civilian JTF leader, Baba Kura Konomi in Maiduguri said: “The insurgents used machetes, instead of guns to kill 12 farmers, while working on their farmlands, located along Maiduguri-Damboa Road. They had guns but refused to use them, so as not to attract attention of security agencies stationed in Molai community.”
He explained that Kalle community is 17 kilometres south of Maiduguri, the hotbed of nine-year insurgency. Kolomi said the terrorists belong to the Abubakar Shekau Boko Haram faction that attacks both military and civilians since 2009.
