Boko Haram terrorists reportedly burnt down another village in the space of three days as they laid siege on Mbolakel village in Borno State on Christmas day.
According to SaharaReporters, the terrorists attacked the village, only kilometres away from Chibok, at about 11:45 pm on Tuesday, December 25, 2018.
Residents reported that at least three people were injured as the terrorists burnt down the whole village as many ran for safety after gunshot rent the air.
A resident identified as Musa told Sahara Reporters:
“The heavy gunshots woke us up. We saw the flames from faraway. Early this morning, we went to the Mbolakel village; it was burnt down, three wounded, there was no loss of lives.”
The attack comes just days after Boko Haram terrorists carried out a similar attack on Makalama community, also near Chibok.
