Boko Haram extremists killed 28 people during attacks on remote farming and fishing villages in northeast Nigeria, members of a civilian defense group said on Friday.
A total of 24 people were killed in an attack Tuesday night in Marfunudi, according to village resident Abubakar Jojo.
The town is roughly 50 miles from the Borno state capital of Maiduguri.
Jojo said the Islamic extremists slit the throats of many of the victims.
Witnesses say the extremists also attacked the fishing village of Kafa on Thursday, killing four people.
Sadiq Kaka, a member of a defense group, said the four bodies were thrown into a river.
