At least 110 civilians were killed and many others wounded in an attack on farmers in northeast Nigeria.
Earlier reports said more than 40 farmers were killed during the attack at a rice farm near Maiduguri.
This latest information indicates that the number of casualties is far higher than the figure given by the Nigerian authorities.
According to the UN’s resident humanitarian coordinator in Nigeria, Edward Kallon, armed men on motorcycles led a brutal attack on farmers harvesting rice in Koshobe, in Borno state.
He condemned the attack and called for the perpetrators to be brought to justice.
