No less than 12 citizens including 10 fishermen and two others are said to have been murdered by the terrorist Boko Haram group in Ngawo Fate village, Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.
While the fishermen were said to have had their lives terminated by the insurgence at about 4.00pm, at Ngawo Fate, the two other persons were reportedly murdered at Dalori at 12 noon by the terrorist, who shot them dead and rustled their cattle.
Ngawo Fate village is said to be a neighbouring community with Alau Dam General, which is about 14 kilometer from Maiduguri.
It was gathered that the vigilantes conveyed the bodies of the slain fishermen to the State Specialist Hospital in Maiduguri.
The killings, it was learnt happened on Saturday but was revealed by a local vigilante source on Monday.
The source claimed that farmers, women and fishermen are being killed on daily basis in the area by the terrorist group which has continued to remain a nightmare to Africa’s most populous nation.
The Nigerian government and Army have continuously maintained that Boko Haram has been technically defeated even as they still struggle to end incessant attacks on military bases and some villages in the North East, especially Borno State, by the terrorist.
