Suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Saturday evening laid siege to Yimirmigza village in Kautikari ward, Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, forcing frightened residents to take to their heels, according to a report last night by TheCable.
The portal quoted a Chibok resident as disclosing that they started hearing strange gunshots around 6pm, forcing them to flee when they noticed that the gunshots were not the routine military gunshots.
“They came in this evening and started shooting sporadically. Most of the villagers have run into the bush. We don’t know if there are casualty yet because right now the insurgents are still in charge of the village,” the source was quoted as saying.
The paper said it gathered that security operatives from the 117 Task Force Battalion of the Nigerian army had been mobilised to stop the insurgents.
