Nigerian military reclaim seized Chibok community under 24hours

24 hours after Boko Haram men caught Chibok town in Borno state, officers from the seventh Division of the Nigerian armed force yesterday recovered the community after a long weapon fight that began yesterday morning.

An indigene of Chibok who talked with Leadership, said a massive deployment  of troopers were seen moving in from the heading of Damboa on Saturday morning and captivated the group sect in a firearm fight, in the long run overwhelming them.

“We saw large number of trucks filled with uniformed personnel moving towards Chibok; initially, we were scared but later realised they were soldiers as they did not harass us like the Boko Haram gunmen usually do” the source said

Confirming the recent development, a top military officer who spoke anonymously said

“We have taken back Chibok town from the insurgents after some few hours of engagement with them. We have since sent them parking from the town; it is now safe for people to return to their homes”.
