On Saturday, November 28, 2020, deadly Nigerian terrorist group, Boko Haram, silt the throat of at least 43 farmers, and injured 6, while 8 others have been declared missing in a rice field located in the Northeastern Nigerian village of Koshobe close to Maidugri in Borno State. The farmers were tied up and were slaughtered in what is probably one of the worst attacks by Boko Haram since 2009 when they began insurgency in the region.
We have recovered 43 dead bodies, all of them slaughtered, along with six others with serious injuries. It is no doubt the handiwork of Boko Haram who operate in the area and frequently attack farmers
