Islamic terrorist sect, Boko Haram, reportedly slit the throats of 10 fishermen in villages near Baga on the shores of the Lake Chad, on Monday, July 27.
A fisherman, who lives in Doron Baga, Buhari Dan-Malam, revealed to AFP on Thursday, that: “The Boko Haram gunmen came around 4:00 pm and they attacked three villages (that are five kilometres/three miles from Doron Baga). They slit the throats of 10 people.”
Abubakar Gamandi, head of the fishermen’s union in Borno State, also confirmed the attack to AFP.
He said: “On Monday around 4 pm (1500 GMT), Boko Haram attacked three villages on the shores of Lake Chad where they slaughtered 10 people, all of them fishermen.”
“The villages attacked were Bundaram, where they killed four people, Fishdam, where they killed two people, and Kwatar Mali, where they killed four people.”
“Boko Haram decided not to use guns so as not to attract the attention of soldiers from Baga. This is why they used knives to slaughter their victims.”
