NEWS : Boko Haram Allegedly Burnt Down A Village Close To Chibok On Christmas Day


Members of the dreaded Boko Haram Sect have reportedly burnt down a village near Chibok in Borno State.

PoliticsNGR learned that this attack, which is the second in three days, occurred in the remote village of Mbolakel, some six kilometres away from Chibok town, at about 11:45pm on Christmas Day. The insurgents injured at least three persons and razed the whole village.

Eyewitness reports reveal that the deafening sound of gunshots roused them from sleep and the smoke could still be seen from distance hours after.


“The heavy gunshots woke us up,” one, who simply identified himself as Musa, said. “We saw the flames from faraway. Early this morning, we went to the Mbolakel Village; it was burnt down, three wounded, there was no loss of lives.”

Three days ago, suspected insurgents attacked Makalama community, also near Chibok, and razed some houses.
