Local sources have claimed that those killed by Boko Haram in Borno state were actually informants to the insurgents and not farmers.

The deadly Boko Haram Terrorist group reportedly beheaded 43 farmers in Zambarmari, a town in Borno State.

The tragic incident happened on Saturday at Koshebe village in  Mafa Local Government Area, while the farmers where working in a rice field.  However, the victims reportedly lives in Zabarmari, a farming community in Jere Local Government Area of the state.

Mallam Kabiru Zanna, a local of Zarbamari, who spoke with DailyPost, said those affected were mainly collaborators of Boko Haram who hailed from Zamfara and Sokoto States and not farmers. He said;

“The people that were killed were logistics suppliers and collaborators with Boko Haram. They supply them food and fuel. They also help the insurgents in selling rustled cows.”

“Last week, these same people were on their way to meeting the insurgents for business when they were accosted by soldiers and after the soldiers couldn’t find anything on them they let them go.

“Meanwhile, the insurgents who were waiting saw them with the troops who later killed 5 of them after an ambush, so the insurgents accused those guys of providing Intel to the soldiers. This is the main reason why the terrorists began killing them.

“The insurgents called them to meet on Thursday but they said they wouldn’t be able to make it until Saturday. They agreed to meet early morning 5:00am on that day. They even had their morning prayers there.

“From there, the insurgents began to tell them about those guys who used to supply them food, who also betrayed them by providing Intel to the troops.

“Normally if there are betrayers in a town the entire community would pay the price for such acts. At that moment, the insurgents ordered that everyone be tied. They instructed that no gun should be fired in other not to attract troops.

“That was exactly what happened. Those people mostly are collaborators of the terrorists”, he added.

Media Aide to Governor Babagana Umar Zulum, Mr. Ahidjo Abdu Likita, also confirmed the claims.
