Eleven persons have been killed by Boko Haram in Amarwa, a community on the outskirts of Maiduguri, the Borno State capital.

The community, which is in Konduga Local Government Area of the state, has been under the siege of the insurgents for some time now, according to its residents.

The latest attack, which claimed 11 lives, according to residents, was hatched last Saturday at noon.

A resident of the village, Modu Ibrahim, alleged that the terror group had unleashed regular attacks on them.

He said the latest was last Saturday’s attack where 11 persons were killed at noon in the community, a distance of 16 kilometres from Maiduguri.

He alleged that the attack was hatched by nine Boko Haram insurgents on motorcycles.

An eyewitness who informed a bereaved families in Maiduguri, said the victims were killed during the clearing of bushes in preparation for the planting season.

Some of the villagers who were shelled-shocked after the attack on the farmers, said: “Those killed went to clear farms in readiness for this year’s farming season.”

The villagers who heard the cries of the slain farmers, said the victims were brutally hacked down with machetes by the insurgents.

Some of the villagers who spoke with journalists, alleged that some insurgents were still visible around Kajiri village in Konduga, which is about two kilometres from the place of the attack and 18 kilometers from Maiduguri.

They claimed that they had informed the military personnel stationed at the Alau dam reservoir, which also is just two kilometres from the village, but no action taken.
