Killing of 43 Farmers: Nigerian govt “must do more” to protect civilians from Boko Haram/ISWAP terror attacks

Following the killing of 43 rice farmers and the abduction of 10 women in Borno State on Saturday, global human rights body, Amnesty International, said on Sunday that the Nigerian government “must do more” to protect civilians from Boko Haram/Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP) terrorists.

The global body also called for the arrests and perpetrators of all such terrorists attacks to justice

Reacting to the killings in a tweet, Amnesty International also said that of the 43 farmers who had their throats slit, 16 were residents of the Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) Farm Centre Camp.

According to the global body, “Boko Haram and other armed groups must renounce their unlawful and vicious campaign of violence against civilians.

“The Nigerian authorities, for their part, must do more to protect civilians and bring the perpetrators of all such attacks to justice.

“Amnesty International’s findings show that, of the 43 farmers slaughtered by Boko Haram yesterday, 16 were Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) resident at Farm Centre IDP Camp. While 10 women working in Kwashabe rice farm are still missing after the attack.”
