A video claiming responsibility for the killing of at least 43 rice farmers in Zabarmari was released by Abubakar Shekau's Boko Haram group.

Shekau said in the video obtained by HumAngle that the farmers had been killed for collaborating with the Nigerian army.

Some of the farmers, he claims, detained their representatives and handed them over to the Nigerian military.

“You think you can arrest our brother and hand him to soldiers and live in peace.

“You think Allah will forget what you have done to our brother.

The leader of Boko Haram warned that if they don't repent, those in cooperation with the army will behold the same fate.

“This message is for those who notoriously nab our brethren and hand them to the military or give them a clue on us.

“You should know that, unless you repent, what happened to your people is awaiting you,” a masked commander of the group warned in the video.
