Zabarmari villagers turn out to bury over 40 farmers beheaded by Boko Haram
Zabarmari villagers turn out to bury over 40 farmers beheaded by Boko Haram

It was a black Saturday in Zabamari as more than 43 farmers were slaughtered in cold blood by Boko Haram terrorists in the farming community in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State.

The incident happened on Saturday, November 28, at Koshebe village, in Mafa Local Government Area while the victims were working in a rice field.

One Mohammed Chiroma from Borno State, shared photos of the victims being recovered from the massacre scene. The photos shows that most of the farmers were beheaded.

The farmers were reportedly rounded up and summarily killed by the armed insurgents in retaliation for refusing to pay extortion.

Officials say Boko Haram members often force villagers to pay illegal taxes by taking their livestock or crops, but some villagers have begun to resist the extortion.

A member of the House of Representatives, Ahmed Satomi, who represents the Jere Federal Constituency of Borno State, said the farmers were attacked because they had disarmed and arrested a Boko Haram gunman on Friday.

"A lone gunman who was a member of Boko Haram came to harass the farmers by ordering them to give him money and also cook for him," he said.

"While he was waiting for the food to be cooked, the farmers seized the moment he stepped into the toilet to snatch his rifle and tied him up.

"They later handed him over to security operatives. But sadly, the security forces did not protect the courageous farmers. And in reprisal for daring them, the Boko Haram mobilised and came to attack them on their farms."

Insurgents also torched the rice farms before leaving, he said.
Reuters reported that at least 30 of the men were beheaded while more than 10 women were reportedly missing.

The victims were buried on Sunday morning, November 29.
