Boko Haram terrorists have slaughtered at least 10 fishermen during a series of recent violent attacks on three villages in Nigeria’s northeastern state of Borno.

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.”
