Boko Haram killed one hundred and ten Nigerian farmers in one day
On the 28th of November, one hundred and ten farmers lost their lives in a Boko Haram attack.
The attacks took place in Koshobe village and other rural communities near the northeast city of Maiduguri. Men rode on motorcycles and shot villagers who were working in their fields that day.
This senseless act of violence is an attempt by Boko Haram to keep the area destabilised and to show that they still have the power to terrorise the people of Nigeria, despite the Nigerian government’s attempts to stop them.
This attack was most likely conducted by the Abubakar Shekau faction of Boko Haram, who is known for their brutality against any and all who do not submit to their strict form of Sharia law.
The other faction, known as the Islamic State West Africa Province, is more known for attacks targeting government and military personnel.
