Governor Babagana Zulum of Borno State has said that 81 people were killed and 13 others injured at Faduma Kolomdi village on Tuesday.
The nomadic village is 120 kilometres north of Maiduguri, the state capital.
The terrorists suspected to be Boko Haram, after the mayhem, abducted the village head, six others and rustled 400 cows.
Zulum disclosed this yesterday when he visited Faduma Kolomdi in Gubio Council to condole with the community over the loss.
A survivor confirmed the figure to the governor.
The governor urged the military to decimate the terrorists on shores of Lake Chad, describing the attack as barbaric and unfortunate.
