Not fewer that seven hunters have been killed and two utility vehicles damaged as a result of landmines planted by suspected insurgents on Tuesday evening, a vigilante source said.
It was gathered that the incident happened at Kayamla village in Jere Local government Area, some 20 kilometers to Maiduguri, the state capital.
Musa Bukar, a top vigilante member who attended the funeral of the seven deceased hunters at the University of Maiduguri Teaching hospital, before they were taken to Gwange Cemetery for burial, disclosed that the deceased  were buried amidst tears in Maiduguri on Wednesday morning.
“We were on patrol along Kayamla axis. We thought it was a common tyre burst, but we later discovered THAT it was an IED plant by the insurgents.
“It was sad they encountered two landmine attacks on Tuesday.
“Instantly 7 of our members lost their lives and the injured ones are currently receiving treatment at University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital,” Bukar said.
There was no immediate comment from the state government or the military authorities about the incident as at the time of filing this report.
