‘DOZENS’ DEAD AS BOKO HARAM SACKS CHURCHES IN CHIBOK
Suspected Boko Haram Islamists armed with explosives attacked a series of churches on Sunday near Chibok, the northeastern town where more than 200 teenage girls were kidnapped in April, witnesses said.
Residents said dozens of people may have been killed in the raids on villages roughly 10 kilometres, (six miles) outside of Chibok, but no one was able to offer an authoritative death toll and the military was not immediately available to comment.
“The attackers went to churches with bombs and guns,” Timothy James, a Chibok resident said by phone.
“From what I gathered, dozens of worshippers, including men, women and children were killed,” he said, explaining that his information had come from people who fled the affected area and through phone calls.
Enoch Mark, an outspoken Chibok leader since the April 14 kidnappings, gave a similar account, telling AFP in Lagos, “presently, as we are talking now, we are under attack”.
“We cannot tell the number of dead bodies,” he added. “I was told the attackers burnt at least three churches to the ground.”
