Abubakar Shekau, leader of the Boko Haram sect, has come out to state that the group is responsible for the killing of farmers in Borno state.
Recall that on Saturday, 43 farmers were reportedly killed after Boko Haram attacked them at the Zabarmari community in Jere local government area of the state.
However, in a video released on Tuesday, Shekau said at least 78 farmers were killed in the tragic incident.
He stated that his men went after the farmers because they handed over a member of the sect to the Nigerian army.
Shekau further warned that those giving out intelligence on Boko Haram activities to the military will face the same fate.
