Boko Haram terrorists on Sunday attacked villages near Chibok in Borno state,with 21 people reportedly killed in two separate operations.
Chibok Hassan, a Chibok resident, told newsmen that attacks happened on Sunday and Wednesday.
He said the insurgents first struck at Kaya, a village 27 km from Chibok, and that residents had deserted their homes.
“There is no single soul remaining there (kaya)… The Boko Haram members came in the evening with their motorcycles, bicycles and started firing at everyone in sight,” he said.
“They burnt many houses. Those who were fortunate ran away, but those who couldn’t escape were attacked. All the villagers have moved out of the village.
“People did not hear about the killings because the village is not accessible. It is located inside the bush.”
Hassan said two days after the incident, the attackers returned to a village close to Gumsri, a Borno community, where 14 persons were allegedly killed.
According to The Cable, the Col. Sani Usman, military spokesman, could not confirm the report as his phone calls were not could not be reached.
