Residents of Yimirmigza village in Kautikari ward, Chibok local government area of Borno, took to their heels after suspected Boko Haram insurgents laid siege on their village.

A Chibok resident told TheCable on Saturday that they started hearing strange gunshots around 6pm.

The villager said they fled when they noticed that the gunshots were not the routine military gunshots.

“They came in this evening and started shooting sporadically. Most of the villagers have run into the bush,” the source said.

“We don’t know if there are casualty yet because right now the insurgents are still in charge of the village.”

TheCable also gathered that security operatives from the 117 Task Force Battalion of the Nigerian army have been mobilised to stop the insurgents.

Yimirmigza village is 19km away from Chibok town which is the local government headquarters.

As at the time of filing this report, efforts made by TheCable to reach Sagir Musa, acting director of the army’s public relations, have not been fruitful.
