Armed terrorists stormed the fishing islands of Duguri and Dabar Wanzam in the freshwater lake Saturday, attacking fishermen working in the area and capturing some of them. They killed 14 in Duguri and another 17 in Dabar Wanzam. News of the attacks took two days to travel as Boko Haram has destroyed telecom masts in the region in attacks over the last few years.
