    MAIDUGURI – At least 15 people who
    specialized in hunting grasshoppers
    popularly called ‘Fara’ in Hausa have been
    slaughtered in the bushes between Gubio
    and Mobbar Local Government Areas of
    Borno state by suspected members of
    dreaded Boko Haram sect. Sources have
    said.
    The incident which happened a week ago
    have caused scarcity and raised the price
    of the commodity in Maiduguri, the state
    capital, as a small measure of fried Fara
    which stood at N500 in the past now sales
    between N1200 and above.
    According to a security source who were
    mobilized to the scene told our
    Correspondent that the insurgents clashed
    with the victims in the bushes near Kareto
    community, north of the state.
    This incident is coming barely two weeks
    when the military of ‘Operation Lafiya Dole’
    reopened the Maiduguri- Gubio- Damasak
    road for motorists.
    The source revealed that “15 people were
    killed by terrorists while combing bushes
    around Kareto area to hunt grasshoppers.
    “When the grasshopper hunters were in
    the bush, some group of terrorists
    suddenly appeared and started shooting
    sporadically, after which they killed one of
    the hunters before slaughtering 14 and
    fled without no arrest”. The source said.
    Also speaking on the killings, Mrs. Hanatu
    Jauro who fries Fara in Maiduguri, told our
    Correspondent in an interview that since
    the incident occured, she have been
    finding it very difficult to get the
    commodity for sale, as one of her
    customer was among those killed in the
    ambush.
    All effort to get confirmation from the
    Police Public Relations Officer, Victor Isuku
    proves abortive as his cell phone lines
    were not reacheable at press time
