Two die in terror attack on Chibok village in Northeast Nigeria

 

Two villagers, identified by police authorities as Badi (75 years) and Ngule (45 years), were killed on Tuesday, December 19, in an attack on Pemi village in Chibok County of Borno State, Northeast Nigeria by Boko Haram jihadists.

 

The terror gang stormed the village at 7:00 p.m. local time, firing gunshots into the air recklessly. Eyewitnesses narrated scenes of panic and fear as villagers scrambled for cover in nearby bushes while the attackers descended upon homes, looting food items and setting houses ablaze. 

 

The attack on Pemi is part of a series of attacks that have targeted communities in Chibok. The town became infamous after Boko Haram outlaws abducted 276 schoolgirls from a government-owned college in April 2014.

 

The wave of terror through parts of Chibok has evolved in the past few years following the occupation of Sambisa Forest, formerly a game reserve renowned for its wildlife, but now a stronghold for two battling Islamist insurgent groups: Boko Haram and the Islamic State of West Africa Province (ISWAP).
