19 Fulani herdsmen have been confirmed and reported dead after engaging in a gunfight with Boko Haram terrorists targeting their cattle outside Fuhe Village near Ngala, close to the border with Cameroon.

Anti-jihadist militia leader, Umar Kachalla told AFP that they brought corpses of the late herdsmen to the police.

“The insurgents killed 19 of the herdsmen in the fight. The herdsmen were subdued by the better-armed Boko Haram gunmen.”
