Boko Haram slaughters 27 fishermen in Cameroon

No fewer than 27 fishermen have been reportedly slaughtered and three others abducted by the Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah, Lid-Da’wah wa’l-Jihād, a Boko Haram terrorists’ group on the border between Cameroon and Nigeria.

The terrorists suspected to be from the Buduma faction of Abou Ummaymah attacked a local fishing community harboring mostly fishermen from Nigeria at Island Kofiya, near Darak in the Republic of Cameroon.

They tied their hands behind their backs before slaughtering them.

The sources said the terrorists also abducted three other fishermen after accusing them of spying for the ISWAP faction.

The bodies of the fishermen were later recovered during a search and rescue operation by troops and their colleagues.
