No fewer than 27 fishermen have been killed and four others abducted by Boko Haram terrorists on the fringes of the Lake Chad basin in the border between Nigeria and Cameroon.
It was gathered that the terrorists suspected to be from the Buduma faction of Abou Ummaymah, attacked a local fishing community harbouring mostly fishermen from Nigeria at the Kofiya Island near Darak in the Republic of Cameroon.
A counter-insurgency expert and security analyst in the Lake Chad, Zagazola Makama, revealed that the terrorists asked them to lie down, tied their hands before killing them.
The sources said the terrorists also abducted four other fishermen after accusing them of spying for the ISWAP faction.
The bodies of the fishermen were later recovered during a search and rescue operation by troops and other fishermen who received the news from victims who fled the attack scene.
