Boko Haram terrorists have reportedly killed 31 fishermen in Baga, Kukawa Local Government Area of Borno State.
News of the killing comes two weeks after the group ambushed members of an oil exploration team in the state, killing more than 20 persons, including troops and abducting University of Maiduguri lecturers who were part of the team.
A source at the Borno State government house said the government had received information on the killing of the fishermen but had yet to get to the scene of the incident to ascertain the situation.
There has been a resurgence in attacks by the terrorists, but the military authorities have said the war against insurgency remains on course.
