The farmers were killed at Kwashabe village, about 20 kilometers north of Maiduguri, Borno capital.

Nasiru Usman, one farmers who escaped during the attack, went to town with the news. He said the attackers also abducted seven farmers.

Usman trouble started after some farmers apprehended a Boko Haram insurgent who approached them with request for food.

“Unknowingly, he was accompanied by dozens of other militants who were hiding around the bush,” he said.

“So immediately they tied him and seized his guns, his other colleagues quickly stormed the scene, and opened fire om the farmers, while they took to their heels.

“At exactly 11am, the group declared a blanket killing against all the farmers harvesting their products. They began by abducting seven, then went on rampage and began killing every one in sight.

“So far, we have recovered upto 45 bodies. Our civilian JTF, police and Military are still searching for more bodies. We won’t know how many are missing so far for now since more bodies are still being found.”

Several bullet wounds were seen on the body of the deceased farmers, according to another source who helped in recovering the bodies and immediately prepared for burial.
