In Borno State region around Lake Chad, at least 29 fishermen have perished at the hands of alleged Boko Haram terrorists.
The incident allegedly took place in Mukdolo village, a border hamlet between Nigeria and Cameroon on the outskirts of Lake Chad, which is a part of Borno State’s Gamboru-Ngala Local Government Area.
Terrorists riding motorbikes killed the fisherman on Wednesday night when they were out fishing and cutting wood, according to sources in the local government area.
According to report, the terrorists opened fire and 29 people were killed while seven others narrowly avoided death and serious injury.
“The terrorists requested that the victims lay down. Then, before they began torturing the captives, they wrapped them in their fishing net. They fired on them once they lost consciousness, killing all 29 of them.
