Gov. Zulum Leads Mass Burial Of Slain Farmers

The governor of Borno State, Prof. Babagana Zulum yesterday, led the family members and other residents of the Zabarmari community to bury the remains of the 43 farmers who were killed by Boko Haram terrorists. 

No less than forty three farmers were killed on Saturday morning around Marrabati and Hammayya villages, near Zabarmari in Jere Local Government Area of Borno State by Boko Haram terrorists.

The farmers were waylaid while on their way to their farmlands to harvest their crops.

Some others were also whisked away by the terrorists and till now their whereabouts remains unknown. 

According to Zulum, "it is disheartening that more than 40 citizens were slaughtered while they were working in their farmlands."

First of all, accept my deepest sympathy over this carnage, once again, that affects all of us and every human with conscience. I am told some persons are still missing. We have been discussing with the military since yesterday, Insha Allah the remaining people will be traced soon.

“Our people are in very difficult situations, they are in two different extreme conditions, in one side they stay at home they may be killed by hunger and starvation, on the other, they go out to their farmlands and risk getting killed by the insurgents. This is very sad.

“We are still appealing to the Federal Government to ensure recruitment of more our youths in the CJTF and hunters into the Nigerian military and the Civil Defence so that they can form part of the agro rangers that will protect farmers. We need many boots to protect farmlands and our youths understand the terrain. We will not lose hope because we have to remain optimistic about ending the insurgency” Zulum said.
