Why We Killed Zabarmari Rice Farmers - Abubakar Shekau

-The Daily Crucible

The factional leader of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents, Abubakar Shekau on Tuesday confirmed that his men were responsible for the gruesome killing of rice farmers in Kwashebe Zabarmari axis of Jere Local government Area of Borno State.

Shekau, in a three-minute video said his people killed 78 farmers for betraying the group to the Nigerian army.

 “The farmers arrested and handed one of its brothers to the Nigerian Army,” Shekau said in the video released on Tuesday.

The sect also  warned that those arresting their members and giving out intelligence on their activities to the military will face the same fate if they did not desist from doing so.

“The third message is on those who notoriously nab our brethren and hand them to the military or give them a clue on us, you should know that, unless you repent, what happened to your people is awaiting you.” he said.

With the revelation coming from Shekau, there are now  conflicting figures about the number of casualties as 43 deaths were first  reported.

Soon after the 43 deaths were reported,  the UN humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon  revealed that at least 110 people were killed in the attack while the Nigerian Military insisted that only 43 died from the attack.

However, Governor Babagana Zulum of Borbo State earlier on Sunday, joined grieving villagers in the funeral prayers for 43 (dead) victims of the attack.
