On Sunday November 19, the Islamic Boko Haram group beheaded six farmers at a plantation in Dimge community in the Mafa Local Government Area of Borno.

Boko Haram has remained steadfast in its deadly attacks in the northeast, although the Federal Government has deployed the armed forces, to check the insurgency.

No fewer than 20,000 people have been killed since the insurgency started nine years ago with over 2.8 million people displaced, according to analysts.
