FFK Reacts to Fight Between Boko Haram and Fulani Herdsmen, 19 Herders Confirmed Dead

According to a civilian Militia source information, not less than 19 herdsmen were confirmed dead as Boko Haram and Fulani Herders engaged in Gunfight on Saturday, outside Fuhe village, near Ngala close to the border with Cameroon.

“The insurgents killed 19 of the herdsmen in the fight,” anti-jihadist militia leader Umar Kachalla told AFP.

Bodies of the slain herders were brought to the police by militiamen, Kachalla said.

The herders had earlier repelled an attack by Boko Haram fighters who invaded the village to steal livestock, killing one of the militants, Mada said.

The herders then decided to pursue the jihadists and fight them “once and for all”, Mada said but were overwhelmed.

“The herdsmen were subdued by the better-armed Boko Haram gunmen,” he said.

Jihadists then returned to Fuhe village and burnt homes and food supplies while herds fled, according to Ngala resident Abubakar Yusuf, who saw the dead bodies at the police station.

Reacting, Femi Fani-Kayode a former Minister of Aviation and a People’s Democratic Party(PDP) member wrote;

“19 Fulani herdsmen killed in gunfight with Boko Haram terrorists in Fuhe village, near Ngala, close to the Cameroonian border.”

“It is my earnest prayer these two merciless, vicious and barbaric jihadi terrorist organisations wipe one another from the face of the earth.”
