The United Nations has declared that over 110 farmers were killed by the rebels of Boko Haram on November 28, in the village of Zabarmari, a community of rice farmers in the Jere area of the State of Borno, in the north of Nigeria, reported Fides News Agency.

“In the early afternoon of November 28, gunmen on motorcycles carried out a brutal attack on civilian men and women, who were working in the fields in Koshobe and other rural communities in the local government area of Jere”, reports Edward Kallon in a statement, UN humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, according to whom several people were injured in the ruthless attack and many women may have been kidnapped by Boko Haram men.
The bloody assault could be in retaliation for the arrest by a group of farmers of a member of Boko Haram, who was handed over to local security officers.
