The violent Islamic sect, Boko Haram, report says, last night invaded Kuburvwa village in Borno State.
Kuburvwa village is located about 10 kilometers from the Chibok community, that came to international limelight after more than two hundred girls were abducted from their school hostels in the town in April 2014.
A Premium Times report quotes a member of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria in Maiduguri, Abbas Gava, as saying that the insurgents invaded the village at about 6.30pm, shooting sporadically as residents fled into bushes.
“As I am speaking to you now, the gunmen are setting every house on fire after chasing the villagers away.
“From the information we have received from our operatives in Chibok and Kautikari, the number of casualty cannot be ascertained for now because the Boko Haram insurgents are still in the village”, Gava, who is the spokesman of the vigilante group, said on the phone.
