The number of farm workers killed on a rice farm in northeastern Nigeria on Saturday has shot to at least 110 people, according to a United Nations report, making it the deadliest attack in the region suspected to have been carried out by Boko Haram. The victims were labourers from Sokoto state in northwestern Nigeria, roughly 1,000 kilometres away, who had travelled to the northeast to find work, a local militiaman, who gave the same toll said, adding that 8 others were missing, presumed to have been kidnapped by the jihadists. Boko Haram and ISWAP, its IS-linked rival, have increasingly targeted loggers, herders and fishermen in their violent campaign, accusing them of spying and passing information to the military and the local militia fighting them.
