The sources said the terrorists also abducted four other fishermen after accusing them of spying for the ISWAP factional group.

“The bodies of the fishermen were later recovered during a search and rescue operation by troops, while their other colleagues fled the scene.” Sources informed.

In a related development, the Islamic State of the West African Province(ISWAP) has executed a police officer abducted along the Damboa – Biu Road in Borno State.
