Gunmen have reportedly attacked Kautikari, a local ward in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.

Local officials in Chibok, who spoke to the press in anonymity, confirmed that gunshots were heard around Kautikari at about 6:00 pm on Tuesday.

According to the eyewitnesses, the sounds continued for almost an hour before a military re-enforcement was seen heading towards the village under attack.

There are no details of the attack at the moment. This attack comes months after gunmen attacked three communities: Kawtakare, Korohuma, and Pemi in the Local Government Area where four persons were reported killed and 110 buildings were burnt in the attack.

Chibok community first came into the limelight in 2014 after Boko Haram insurgents attacked a Government Girls Secondary School in the community, and abducted over 200 school girls. While some managed to escape from their abductors and others were rescued through government interventions, many remain unaccounted for.
