Five churches, including COCIN, EYN and Deeper Life Bible Church, in Kwada village about 10 kilometres from Chibok town, were on Sunday attacked by Boko Haram insurgents.
The attackers, according to report from locals in Chibok, targeted the time when worshipers were ready for the Sunday Service.
“They killed and burnt houses after attacking worshipers in five churches in Kwada; after that, they advanced to Kautikari, less than 8 kilometres to Chibok town, whey they equally killed people and destroyed properties.
“I’m not sure security agencies have gone to rescue the villagers, but I learnt that the insurgents are still in pursuit of the remaining villagers”, Mallam Yahi told DailyPost.
It was gathered that residents of Chibok town have also fled their homes, following the news of the attacks in Kwada and Kautikari.
DailyPost recalls that few weeks ago, there was panic in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, following a letter purportedly written to them by the sect members.
Earlier this week, Boko Haram was blamed for a bombing at a shopping complex in the Nigerian capital Abuja. (Reuters)
