Terrorists attack Chibok again, abduct civilian JTF leader, others
Adelani Adepegba, AbujaThe Islamic State of West Africa Province on Wednesday attacked Bambula community in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.During the early morning raid, the insurgents reportedly abducted the head of the Civilian Joint Task Force in the community, Mohammed Abba, and others.
The attack came barely a week after the terrorists attacked Kwallangulum in Chibok, setting many houses on fire.Over 200 schoolgirls were abducted from Chibok by ISWAP collaborators Boko Haram in 2014.TheCablereports that Abba had been on the insurgents’ radar for a long time, following his refusal to cooperate with them.
“The insurgents came in through Ajigum Talala, a part of the forest where ISWAP has a strong unit,” a resident told the medium. “They headed straight to Abba and took him. They have been warning him before, but Abba refused to cooperate with them“They abducted many others who couldn’t run. They also burnt down property including a vehicle belonging to the community head.”
Our correspondent could not immediately confirm the attack as calls to the Theatre Commander, Operation Lafiya Dole, Major General Olusegun Adeniyi, and spokesman for the Nigerian Army, Col. Sagir Musa, were not returned.They had also yet to respond to the text messages sent to their phones as of the time of filing this report.
But spokesman for Kibaku Community Development Association, Dr Allen Manasseh, said on Wednesday Ajigum Talala community where the insurgents reportedly came from had been under Boko Haram occupation for a long time.Manasseh, a Chibok leader, told our correspondent in Abuja on Wednesday the community had not been liberated despite claims by the military despite the insurgents were no longer there.
He said the war against insurgency was far from being won.READ ALSO:Soldier fighting Boko Haram kills four colleagues, injures othersManasseh said, “Talala, where the Boko Haram launched the attack from, was never liberated. It has been under the control of Boko Haram from day one. We have been punching the lies by the military that there is no place under Boko Haram occupation.
“When did they open the Damboa-Maiduguri Road? Was it not recently when (Borno State) Governor Babagana Zulum complained? So, why close federal roads if there were no communities under Boko Haram? Then, why are people still in IDPs camps if there are no communities under Boko Haram?
“Even, President Buhari knows that the military are lying and all the service chiefs know that they are lying. From where are the insurgents coming to attack Chibok villages?“How many times have they attacked Kwallangulum? Three times since December. So, even if they are not occupying any territory, why are they still carrying out attacks unchallenged? These are the questions we want the media to keep hammering.”

Terrorist abduct civilian JTF leader keh!😂 We should hold our President, leaders in his cabinet and all the security chiefs in this country for releasing Boko Haram members from prison. It's only in Nigeria you hear a terrorist is rehabilitated!🤔🤔🐒 Boko Haram is the crude oil of the North.... This is what the leaders of Nigerian Army want. This is Abba Kyaris desire. This is what Buhari wants.
What is paining me most is the camouflage that these terrorists wear. Don't they know that it is made by boko knowledge? Soft target, I think Since chibok is now a story line. Lets keep watching nah. GarShehu what do you have to say to this?
StackPathFake news Wily u kip kwiet? We are not expecting otherwise, say the truth and in 24 hours Experience a forceful retirement.
Lobatan Is like Boko Haram are now reborn. They are just enjoying themselves at this point in time This is worrisome ! I can't figure out why attacks could happen repeatedly in a place without a reprisal. This is very unfortunate This is a big blow, Terrorist can attack Chibok again. JTF has gone to sleep.
Nice one Has anyone noticed that when buhari and buratai start running their mouths that Boko Haram will be crushed soon, the devil's children intensify their attacks? Wouldn't it be better they kept quiet? Imagine the state of our beloved country NIGERIA under WEAK President BUHARI for another 3 and half years...so SAD...😎
