It was gathered that on Sunday morning the insurgents attacked mourners in Takulashi village, barely 15 kilometres to the local government headquarters in Chibok town.

The villagers said the insurgents opened fire on the mourners targeting and killing 11 men, after which they picked out and abducted 9 women that met their fancy.

The attack lasted for over three hours before military arrived to repel the terrorists, a resident of the village told newsmen on Monday evening.

“The insurgents were believed to have made an in-road into the village through the Sambisa Forest, and Local rescue team are still searching for victims that fled into nearby bushes and farmlands,” Ishaku Musa said.

Musa noted that Takulashe village, is prone to attacks, as the community is located on the fringes of the forest.

“The insurgents launched their attacks from forest on motorcycles that maneuvered the footpaths to the farming and herding community.

“Troops have been stationed in Chibok town since the abduction of 276 Chibok schoolgirls on April 14, 2014 by Boko Haram. But surrounding villages have continued to suffer from attacks, which happens unchallenged as the attackers always perpetrate their evils and leave before the arrival of security operatives,” he added.

The insurgents came with six gun trucks, three other vehicles and some heavy weapons. They also killed some vigilantes who first engaged them and had collected their Hilux vehicle,” another source said.

It was gathered that the head of the vigilante group in Takulashe village immediately called the army brigade.

From the information he gave, the army brigade called on the Air Force for air support as soldiers from the 117 battalion under the brigade were mobilized to advance to the area.

But the air force could not respond, a situation which led to the insurgent bringing the whole village to ashes.

When contacted, there was no response from Major General John Enenche, Media Coordinator in the Defence Headquarters on the attack on Chibok village.

This is coming one week after Boko Haram insurgents have killed six people including a pregnant woman and injured seven others in Damboa, Borno State.
