Boko Haram insurgents are currently attacking Makalama, a village in Gatamwarwa ward, Chibok local government area of Borno state.

This is coming barely two months after the insurgents attacked Mifa, also in Chibok, killing the village head.

“They came in this night (Sunday) through the nearby deserted Gogumdi village,” a Chibok resident told TheCable.

“They started shooting and people have been running to the bushes. Our troops here at 117 task force battalion are getting set to move in now,” he added.

Makalama is about 21 kilometres away from Chibok town.

“Most of the villagers are farmers who are in the harvest period. The insurgents came in and started shooting and when villagers ran inside the bush, they started looting their stores,” another Chibok resident told TheCable.

Sani Usman, army spokesman, told TheCable that troops have responded to the attack.

He said: “Yes, there was reported presence of suspected armed men in a village called Makalama, about 23 km from Chibok in which troops have responded. However, I will investigate further.”

Although the military is intensifying its effort in fighting the insurgents, Abubakar Elkanemi, shehu of Borno, in November said the people of the state are still under Boko Haram siege.
