Tears as 43 farmers massacred by members of Boko Haram terrorists were laid to rest this morning, sunday, November 29.
Residents of Zabarmari community led by the governor, Babagana Zulum buried the 43 victims who were attacked and brutally murdered on Saturday at a farming community in Jere LGA of the state, famous for rice cultivation and local processing.
Asaid.According to a resident of the area who visited the governor, some farmers are still missing after the massacre.
“Your Excellency, as you have seen here, 43 corpses were buried, but others have not been retrieved from the scene of the incident. Nobody can tell you the exact number of people killed. Some of the victims are still missing”
The governor in his speech while addressing the bereaved Community expressed his condolence over the gruesome killing of the farmers.
The governor said:
“First of all, accept my deepest sympathy over this carnage, once again, that affects all of us and every human with conscience. I am told some persons are still missing. We have been discussing with the military since yesterday, Insha Allah the remaining people will be traced soon.”
It is disheartening that more than 40 citizens were slaughtered while they were working in their farmlands. Our people are in very difficult situations, they are in two different extreme conditions, in one side they stay at home they may be killed by hunger and starvation, on the other, they go out to their farmlands and risk getting killed by the insurgents,”
“This is very sad. We are still appealing to the Federal Government to ensure recruitment of more our youths in the CJTF and hunters into the Nigerian military and the Civil Defence so that they can form part of the agro rangers that will protect farmers. We need many boots to protect farmlands and our youths understand the terrain. We will not lose hope because we have to remain optimistic about ending the insurgency”
Boko Haram members, yesterday, slaughtered 43 farmers at a rice plantation and destroy the rice plantation after slaughtering them in Borno State.
