Boko Haram insurgents on Monday slit the throats of ten fishermen in villages near Baga on the shores of the Lake Chad.
Abubakar Gamandi, head of the fishermen’s union in Borno State, confirmed the news, Yahoo News reports.
An eyewitness stated:
“The Boko Haram gunmen came around 4:00 pm and they attacked three villages (that are five kilometres/three miles from Doron Baga). They slit the throats of 10 people…
Boko Haram decided not to use guns so as not to attract the attention of soldiers from Baga. This is why they used knives to slaughter their victims.”
