The most dreaded terrorist group in Nigeria, Boko Haram has claimed responsibility for the slaughter of 43 rice farmers in Zabarmari, Maiduguri, Borno State.
Recall that Pinaxonline.com earlier published that about 43 farmers were attacked and beheaded on Saturday, November 28.
In a new video, masked commander of the Abubakar Shekau’ s faction of the terrorist group,Jama’atu Ahlussunnah Lidda’awati Wal Jihad, has said that the farmers were killed in retaliation for arresting one of their members and handing him over to the military.
The video was titled “رسالة جديدة- meaning the new message. Reports have it that the video lasted for three minutes, 37 seconds and was released on Tuesday, December 1.
“You think you can nab our brother and hand him to soldiers and live in peace. You think Allah will forget what you have done to our brother” he asked.
He also threatened that members of the public who are spying on the sect and refuse to repent will face the same fate as the murdered 43.
“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.”
