The United Nations has said at least 110 farmers were killed by Boko Haram insurgents in the northeast.

The figure nearly tripled the 43 farmers that were initially reported killed by the insurgents on Saturday.

French newswire AFP cited UN humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria Edward Kallon as saying on Sunday afternoon that at least 110 people were killed.

Earlier on Sunday, Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno had admitted more bodies were yet to be recovered from the village where the terrorists attacked rice farmers.

The governor led other leaders in Zabarmari to bury 43 bodies that were retrieved on Saturday.

President Muhammadu Buhari has condemned the attack as ‘insane,’ saying the armed forces had all the resources needed to protect lives and Nigerian territory.
