Zulum leads burial of 43 farmers killed in Borno Village


Borno State governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum was at farming community of Zabarmari early  Sunday morning to lead relatives and residents, for the funeral of 43 farmer slain by the Boko Haram Terrorist (BHT).

Zulum while addressing  the bereaved community during his visit,was told that death toll was yet to be fully ascertained.

Speaking to journalists the governor said, “It is disheartening that more than 40 citizens were slaughtered while they were working in their farmlands. 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”.
