Forty-three were slaughtered, with six injured,” Liman said.Eight others were missing, presumed to have been kidnapped by the jihadists, he said.The bodies were taken to Zabarmari village, two kilometers away, where they would be kept ahead of burial on Sunday, said resident Mala Bunu who took part in the search and rescue operation.In October, Boko Haram militants slaughtered 22 farmers working on their irrigation fields near Maiduguri in two separate incidents.The violence has also spread into neighboring Niger, Chad and Cameroon, prompting a regional military coalition to fight the militants.AFPload_file(“/includes-n/article_share.html”);RELATED ARTICLES Edna O’Brien picks up French prize for Boko Haram bookVeteran Irish writer Edna OBrien was honored with a special prize Tuesday after her latest novel narrowly missed … Nigeria says 27 Boko Haram militants killed in joint operation with CameroonTwenty-seven Boko Haram militants have been killed in the latest clearance operation aimed at routing remnants of the … Nigeria bombs Boko Haram locations after military base attackThe Nigerian Air Force has bombed several Boko Haram terrorists locations following their attack on a military base …load_file(“/includes-n/article_most_view.html”);var wxs = (function() {return navigator.userAgent.toLowerCase().indexOf(micromessenger) !== -1})();if (!wxs) {/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var disqus_shortname = globaltimes; // required: replace example with your forum shortnamevar disqus_identifier = 1208371;/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function () {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = https:// + disqus_shortname + .disqus.com/embed.js;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();}Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.blog comments powered by Disquswindow._taboola = window._taboola || [];_taboola.push({mode: thumbnails-a,container: taboola-below-article,placement: below article,target_type: mix});load_file(“/includes-n/footer.html”);load_file(“/includes-n/addthis.html”);
