Confirming the incident, members of the state civilian Joint Task Force and some residents, told newsmen that the sect members stormed the place where the workers were laying telecoms fibre optic cables in Wajirko village, 150 kilometres (93 miles) outside Borno state capital Maiduguri and opened fire on them.
“The insurgents came in the morning and opened fire on the workers, killing 11 and injuring many. The attackers had warned the labourers to stop working on laying the cables but they ignored the warning because they needed money to feed their families,” a Borno militia leader, Mustapha Karimbe, said
According to a resident, Buka Maduye, the sect members had come to their community on three different occasions to warn the men to stop laying the telecoms fibres which the group saw as a threat.
“Our people are starving and the laying of the cables provides some of us a good source of income which was why we ignored the warning,” said Maduye
The Nigerian military is yet to confirm this recent attack.
