Suspected members of Boko Haram have taken siege of Yimirmigza Village in Kautikari ward under Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.
A source claimed residents are already running away from the community.
A resident of Chibok revealed that they started hearing strange gunshots around 6:00 pm on Saturday. The resident said they fled when they noticed that the gunshots were not from the military. Bornu State is one of Boko Haram’s strongholds, and the abduction of Chibok school students in 2015 remains one of their major terrorism attacks in Nigeria.
