Several houses burnt as Boko Haram attack Chibok
Armed men suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents were on Friday reported to have launched an attack in Mifa, a village in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.
An undisclosed number of houses were said to have been razed during the attack by the insurgents, who arrived at about 8pm, according to TheCable.
The online medium quoted a resident to have said, “They are burning houses as I speak to you; many of them arrived with motorcycles and started attacking the village. They have burnt so many houses, especially because it is dark and due to the terrain of the place.
“We don’t know of any casualty yet. The troops just arrived, although the insurgents are still inside the villages.”
The Acting Director, Army Public Relations, Col Sagir Musa, could not be reached for comments on the Chibok incident as his line rang out. A text message also sent to his line had yet to be replied to as of press time.
Meanwhile, the #BringBackOurGirls will today (Saturday) mark the 2,000 days of the abduction of 276 Chibok School girls in April 2014.
Out of this figure, 57 of the girls escaped from captivity, four were found dead, 21 released, 82 were released while 19 parents were said to have died.
