Boko Haram sets Chibok ablaze

Boko Haram insurgents are reportedly currently raiding Mifa, a village in Chibok local government area of Borno state.

Mifa, eight kilometres away from Chibok town, is the last settlement which shares a border with the dreaded Sambisa forest.

According to TheCable, a Chibok resident said that the insurgents are currently setting houses ablaze in the community.

“They came in from the forest some minutes ago. They are currently burning houses,” the resident said.

A military source also confirmed the attack, saying security operatives are preparing to storm the town.

“Troops are yet to move in but they are trying to mobilise here from Chibok,” the source said.
