Boko Haram Raids Village Near Chibok in Borno State
Reports reaching DAILY POST from Maiduguri, the Borno state capital said, Boko Haram terrorists have invaded Korongilim village near Chibok local government area of the state, where they burnt down all the houses in the village.
Barr. Lawan Abana, a resident of Maiduguri, told DAILY POST that, the attackers, who arrived the village at about 8:00pm did not meet anyone in the village at the time they came because the people were alerted by gunshots from the insurgents and escaped before they arrived the village.
According to him, the terrorists were on their way to attack the village when their vehicles stuck in the mud. In the process of pulling their vehicles out, a heavy gunfire went off, which put the village on alert and they fled their homes.
“By the time terrorists eventually came to attack, nobody was around and they burnt the whole village. Soldiers arrived, but by then the terrorists wreaked havoc and left.
“All the villagers dispersed and displaced with their houses burnt needs urgent help particularly in this rainy season. Thank God, no death was reported,” he added.
