According to Press TV, local sources said on Thursday that the deadly terrorist raids were carried out in the villages near the town of Baga, on the shores of the Lake Chad in the country’s troubled northeast.
AFP quoted Abubakar Gamandi, the head of the fishermen’s union in Borno State as saying “On Monday around 4:00 p.m. local time, Boko Haram attacked three villages on the shores of Lake Chad where they slaughtered 10 people, all of them fishermen.”
The account was confirmed by a local fisherman, identified as Buhari Dan-Malam.
The news comes a few days after at least 14 people were killed and nearly 50 others wounded in a July 26 bomb attack at a busy market in the town of Damaturu, the capital of Yobe State.
