Brief – Three villagers were killed, five women abducted and the medical dispensary, a school, a church and more than 20 houses were torched when insurgents, thought to be members of the Islamic State West Africa Province, attacked Kautikari in the Chibok Local Government Area in Borno State on Friday, January 14.
Habu Musa, a resident, told RNI reporter Aisha Jamal that the insurgents arrived at about 5.30pm in two vehicles and on more than 10 motorbikes. They were shooting haphazardly.
“The attack lasted almost three hours. They killed three men and abducted nine women. They released four of the women who were married.”
The attack came two months after troops were withdrawn from the village.
