Boko Haram insurgents have reportedly killed 20 farmers in Ngamgam settlement about 50km east of Damasak, Mobbar area of Borno state.
It was learned that the incident happened on Tuesday and many residents of the area are moving from the settlement to Damasak, according to Daily Trust.
Five Nigerian soldiers were last week reported to have been killed after an ambush by the Islamic State-backed faction of Boko Haram.
According to a source, the fighters from Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) on Friday opened fire on a column of civilian vehicles under military escort in the northeastern Borno State.
The troops were escorting residents from the village of Sabon Garin Kimba in dozens of trucks to a camp in the town of Damboa about 50 kilometres (30 miles) away, according to a militia fighting against the jihadists alongside the army.
Similarly, last week, the Islamic State (IS) claimed that its fighters killed at least 20 Nigerian soldiers in some attacks in Borno state.
Concise News understands that one of the attacks was the one carried out on Wednesday, June 12 at Kareto village, Mobbar area of the state.
