Villagers near Lake Chad who alerted authorities, has discovered bodies of 42 fishermen who were kidnapped last week by Boko Haram terrorists.

The Cameroonian military has reportedly disclosed to the Associated Press that the bodies of 42 fishermen who were kidnapped last week by the deadly Boko Haram terrorists on the Nigeria-Cameroon border were recovered in a lake.

The Daily Sabah reported that villagers near Lake Chad alerted authorities after several bodies were observed floating. The bodies were removed from the lake on Saturday and Sunday.

The report said fighting between Boko Haram and an insurgency in northern Nigeria has intensified in the past few weeks.

It was gathered that more than 50,000 people have been forced in recent days to flee their homes in southeastern Niger after a series of attacks by Boko Haram.

Niger contributes to a multi-national force set up to fight Boko Haram in the region, where attacks in recent years have killed at least 20,000 people and displaced 2.7 million, according to Amnesty International and the U.N.
