Boko Haram Strikes Again, Burns Down Village Near Chibok

Boko Haram has burnt down a village neighbouring the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok where the group kidnapped over 200 schoolgirls two years ago, local residents said Wednesday.
A group of Boko Haram gunmen invaded Goptari, 10 kilometres from Chibok, late Tuesday and set it on fire after looting food supplies and livestock.

The attack underscores the continued threat of Boko Haram in Nigeria’s volatile northeast, where the military is still battling for control despite making gains against the insurgents over the past year.

“They attacked the village around 8:00 pm, firing heavy guns which made people flee into the bush,” Samson Bulus from nearby Kautikeri village told AFP.

“The Boko Haram raiders looted homes and shops, taking along food supplies and livestock before burning the entire village,” he said.

Luka Damina, another Kautikeri resident said troops in Chibok engaged the attackers in gun battle but were subdued by the insurgents.

“The Boko Haram fighters overpowered the soldiers and seized a van with a machine gun mounted on the deck from the soldiers,” he said.

Witnesses, including a local chief, said a soldier was wounded during the shootout.
