Some terrorists suspected to be Boko Haram sect members launched their attacks on poor farmers in their farmlands within the week killing nine people, and setting ablaze over twenty farmlands in Konduga Local Government Area of Borno State.

Konduga is about 40 kilometres away from Maiduguri, the state capital which had witnessed series of attacks and bombings by the insurgents.

The deadly one was in the last three months when about 50 worshippers were killed in a mosque during subhi/morning prayers.


Speaking to DailyPost at the Government House Maiduguri, Alhaji umar Baganin Laifinka who accompanied the Caretaker Chairman of Konduga, Alhaji Ali Abbari to see the Deputy Governor on behalf of Governor Kashim Shettima lamented that the rate at which the Boko Haram insurgents were wrecking havoc in communities of Konduga called for immediate government intervention.

Laifinka stated that “in the last 7 days, Boko Haram insurgents have killed over nine people and set ablaze over 20 farmlands about to be harvested; as I am talking to you now, our people living in Balge and Umba villages behind (kwatan Yobe), have been displaced as some of the terrorists did not only set their farmlands ablaze, but their residential houses”.

Efforts to obtain comments from the police did not yield result as at the time of filling this report.
