#BOKOHARAM - SCORES KILLED IN CHIBOK CHURCH ATTACKS

FIVE churches, including Cocin, EYN and Deeper Life in Kwada village, about 10 kilometres from Chibok town, Borno State, were attacked by gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram members, on Sunday, leaving scores of worshippers dead.

The attackers, according to report from locals in Chibok, targeted the time the people were in their churches for the Sunday worship. “They killed and burnt houses after attacking worshippers in five churches in Kwada and advanced to Kautikari, less than eight kilometres to Chibok town, killing people and burning houses and properties.

“As of now, those who could flee have fled the village into the bush and they are being pursued by the attackers,” Mallam Yahi told the Nigerian Tribune.
#BOKOHARAM - SCORES KILLED IN CHIBOK CHURCH ATTACKSIt was gathered that the people living in Chibok town had also fled their homes, following the news of the attacks in Kwada and Kautikari.

A few weeks ago, there was panic in Chibok Local Government Area, following a letter purportedly written to the people of the community by the sect members, informing them of plans to attack the area again.

A top local government official in Chibok town, who did not want his name published, said “whenever Boko Haram tells you that they are coming, they will surely come. Our fears now is that we don’t know when and how they are going to attack, but our people are in great fear. We are calling for prayers as well as on government to provide adequate security in Chibok.”

There was no official detail yet from either the police or military authorities over the attack in the villages, as the incidents were said to be ongoing as of the time of filing this report.
