A source revealed to PRNigeria that the farmers (who were siblings) were attacked on Thursday around 3.30 p.m. while harvesting their farm produce near Daiwa along the road to Damboa.

“The terrorists shot the farmers, killing two and wounded one,” the source disclosed.

“However, a squad commanded by one Saminu Audu, a gallant CJTF Commander of Intelligence, caught up with the terrorists at Lamboa, along the Damaturu – Maiduguri road, between Minok and Janaka.

“Three terrorists were eliminated in a very tough gun dwell, while one was taken alive.

“The terrorists were said to be remnants of the Abubakar Shekau group of Boko Haram, who refused to pay allegiance to ISWAP. For survival, they rely on robberies and kidnappings of commuters.”
