No fewer than 29 fishermen have lost their lives to suspected Boko Haram terrorists while fishing in the Lake Chad region in Borno State.
The incident reportedly happened at Mukdolo village located in Gamboru-Ngala Local Government Area of Borno State, a Nigeria-Cameroon border town along the fringes of Lake Chad.
Sources in the local government area confirmed that the fishermen were killed while on fishing and wood-cutting activities on Wednesday evening by terrorists riding on motorcycles.
It was reported that the terrorists started shooting sporadically killing 29 while seven others barely escaped with degrees of injuries.
“The terrorists asked the victims to lie down. Thereafter, they used their fishing net and wrapped the victims before they started torturing them. After they became unconscious, they opened fire on them and killed all 29 of them”
