Boko Haram terrorists have killed 10 people and abducted another 13 others in a raid on Kubrrivu, near the northeast Nigerian town of Chibok where over 200 schoolgirls were abducted in 2014.
The terrorists invaded the town at dawn, firing on sleeping residents, looting and burning houses before returning to the forests.
“They burnt down the whole village after looting food supplies and livestock and taking away women and children”.
“After killing 10 people and burning the entire village, the gunmen made away with 13 people, including seven women, five boys and a girl,” a witness said.
In 2014 Kubrrivu was burnt down in a deadly Boko Haram raid which forced residents to flee. A year later they returned and rebuilt their homes after Nigerian troops recaptured swathes of territory from the Islamists in a series of military successes against them.
