No fewer than four people were killed and an unspecified number injured, when the dreaded islamic sect, Boko Haram attacked Balakari village in Chibok Local Government area of Borno State.

According to The Cable, a source confirmed it happened around Noon on Saturday.

“Four people were killed in the attack and many houses were also destroyed,” he said.

“Some rode on motorbikes, while some trekked. They were fully armed and shot into the air, confidently. The military did not respond on time.”

Efforts to confirm the development from Victor Isuku, the police public relations officer in the stateprovef abortive, as he did not answer his call and had not responded to the text message sent to his phone at the time this report was filed.

Chibok came under global spotlight in April 2014 when over 200 female students were abducted from Government Secondary School, in the local government.

While some of the students managed to escape, the whereabouts of over 150 of them are still unknown till date.

However, the Nigerian military has continued its fight against the terrorist group, in a bid to locate and rescue the girls.

More so, during the 70th session of the United Nations General Assembly, President Buhari said freedom of the girls, remained a priority of his government.

“One of our major aims is to rescue the Chibok girls alive and unharmed,” he had said.

Boko Haram has continued to attack communities, particularly in the north-east, despite the efforts of security agencies to put them in check.
