Forty-three farmers have been reportedly executed by suspected members of Boko Haram, HumAngle reported on Saturday.

The outlet said the farmers were killed in Zabarmari, about 20 kilometres from Maiduguri, the Borno capital where Nigerian military has used as headquarters in the ongoing war against insurgency.

Residents have reportedly said the victims would not be buried until Governor Babagana Zulum arrived to see the carnage, HumAngle reported.

The beheadings came weeks after the governor’s convoy was attacked, leaving several police officers and soldiers killed. Boko Haram fighters also struck a military convoy last week, killing several Nigerian soldiers.
