Nigeria’s President, Muhammadu Buhari has described Saturday’s slaughtering of 43 farmers in Borno, Northeast Nigeria by Boko Haram terrorists as insane.

The farmers on rice fields at Zabarmari, in Jere Local Government area of Borno were on Saturday slaughtered by the insurgents.

The terrorists reportedly tied them up and slit their throats.

However, Buhari, in a statement issued by his spokesman, Garba Shehu late Saturday night expressed grief over the killing of farmers on rice fields at Zabarmari, in Jere Local Government of Borno State.

He condemned the killing, saying the entire country is hurt by these senseless killings.

Buhari said his government has given the necessary support to the military to protect the country’s population and territory.

”I condemn the killing of our hardworking farmers by terrorists in Borno State. The entire country is hurt by these senseless killings.

“My thoughts are with their families in this time of grief. May their souls Rest In Peace,” he said.

  • Book haram has not been defeated as claimed by our government
    We have not been able to return to their homes refugees who are languishing in camps and those who return cannot be sure of their lives. The security agents should concentrate their fire power on boko haram and armed Fulani bandits instead of keeping them in South East where armless youth are being killed at a slight provocation.
