Korongilum, a community in Chibok local government area of Borno state, is currently being attacked by suspected Boko Haram insurgents, TheCable reports.
However, a military source told the newspaper that troops from the Nigerian Army’s 28 task force brigade and 117 battalion had already been mobilized to the area.
A resident stated that the insurgents came into the community around 6pm, shooting sporadically and setting many houses on fire.
“People were just returning to their houses from the farm when the insurgents came in,” the resident said.
“They came in through Forfor, and our people are running for safety as we speak.”
