Boko Haram Fresh Attack Claims 40 In Chibok


Boko Haram Fresh Attack Claims 40 In Chibok

Members of the radical Islamist
sect- Boko Haram at the weekend killed no fewer than 40 people in an
attacked launched on three villages of Chuha A, Chuha B, and Korongilim
in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.

According to vanguard newspaper, the assailants after carting away
foodstuff and livestock, destroyed houses, shops and vehicles.  

A witness and a community youth leader, who gave his name as Yakubu
Joshua, said the victims included teenagers while confirming the attack
on Sunday.

“Some suspected Boko Haram terrorists invaded Chuha A, Chuha B and
Korongilim villages of Chibok council of Borno State and killed over 40
persons” he said. “The terrorists injured many other villagers, burnt
many houses and made away with our foodstuff. The attack, which
commenced at 7a.m. yesterday lasted over five hours before military
intervened. I and some other residents of Chibok had made several
telephone calls to the military, unfortunately they (military) only
started bombing the surrounding area of the attack after over 40 members
of our community had been killed. The lifeless bodies of our people are
still littered in the three villages as I speak, but our present fear
is that many innocent villagers may be hit by the ongoing bombings by
the military.”

Abba Aji Khalil, another resident, who is also the chairman of sector
5 of the local vigilante group in the state also confirmed the

“My group is already in hot pursuit of the suspected terrorists. Our
members in Chibok and neighbouring local government areas are already in
hot pursuit of the suspected terrorists” he said.

The state Police Commissioner, Lawal Tanko, and his spokesman, Gideon
Jubrin, could not be reached to get  confimation on the incident, but a
senior police officer, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he
was not authorised to talk with journalist confirmed the attack.

Meanwhile, residents of Chibok community had been living perpetual
fear following a letter that was allegedly sent by the sect detailing an
impending attack.

It would be recalled that the sect members attacked Chibok on April
14, killed scores of people and abducted more than 200 female students
from Government Girls Secondary School.

The girls, however, are yet to be rescued although international
communities like U.K, France, Israel, Britain, US amongst others, whom
volunteered to help the Nigerian government in bringing back the girls
are yet to come up with a positive result.

The presidential fact-finding
committee set up by Jonathan on the abduction of the girls, on Sunday,
22 June, 2014 submitted their report in Abuja, confirming that about 219
girls were still missing.
