Kwamjilari is about 19km from Chibok, a local government headquarters in Borno State.

A resident of Chibok, who spoke to journalists on phone but wished not to be named for safety reasons, said many of the attacked villagers ran to Chibok on Sunday afternoon.

“It was a sad incident in Kwamjilari village,” he said. “The gunmen who invaded the village on motorbikes opened fire on the people as they returned home after the Sunday church service. Eight people were killed according to the villagers.”

The bodies of the deceased persons were buried on Monday.

The police and have not reacted to the latest attack. But an operative of the local vigilante group in Maiduguri, Malam Musa, confirmed the attack to PREMIUM TIMES.

The attack occurs one week after the terrorists released a video showing hundreds of people whom they called their members praying during the Islamic festival, Eid-el-Kabir.

In the video, the insurgents threatened more attacks and claimed they were not losing the war against the Nigerian military.

The military has discountenanced the video and described it as adulterated.

While the military continues to reclaim territory from the insurgents, the federal government has indicated willingness to do a prisoner swap with the sect in order to free the over 200 kidnapped Chibok secondary school girls.

    There’s no doubt Nigerians are suffering and dying in pains. No food, no jobs, no new businesses. People are losing their jobs and contracts. The economy is going down with naira crying daily for divine intervention.

    Before the elections, I warned those that were eligible to vote in Nigeria not to vote for General Muhammadu Buhari. Some called me an unpatriotic hateful NAMES said that they couldn’t stomach my ruggedness and calls for Buhari to be sent back to Mali. NOW NKO—-WE have a useless air-force just bombing people for the fun of it—————and lying to the Nation that Buratai the Dubai thief has won the war-with Fulani boko haram-fighters–Bingo -Buhari also said he was negotiating with boko haram over the release of the fake chibo girls————So freed Kabiru Sokoto among 3,00 other boko haram Fulani fighters from Mali -while 20,000 troops were sent to kill the father of tompolo and other Ijaw men in the creeks of the niger delta—————separation is the only way out————————–of this Fulani ati Yoruba rule–in Aso Rock–with the aid of their Ibo errand boys in APC


      Unfortunately, Even your unborn children can’t witness the speration you are clamoring for,

        Not even the unborn children’s children. One can only hope those ones will not be as useless as their ancestors

        Ibo man-another hail hitler of the Apes in Bingo Buhari– keep on fooling yourself while U hide under Fulani names to post yr regional hate filled comments——against calls for us to restructure Nigeria——–Besides,–(na by force for us to remain one?)

        Aware—-Bingo Buhari once said that unlike the special treatment given to the Niger Delta militants by the federal government under Jonathan, that Boko Haram Fulani fighters were being killed and their houses demolished by the government of Jonathan in the North East.

        Alhaji Bingo Buhari later asked Jonathan, to stop the clampdown of Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed. Sadly we now have the father of Tompolo murdered in cold blood by the Fulani and Yoruba army of occupation. Already the Nigerian army has confessed to killing more than 50 militants within the last few months.

        Buhari who aired his satanic views on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week accused the government of Jonathan, of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants under Tompolo get special treatment. Yet Buhari under the command of Buratia recently bombed more than 8 Ijaw communities–while searching for Tompolo and his late father-who was recently murdered by Fulani ati Yoruba and Itsekiri soldiers- Separation is the answer–not the rule of the Fulanis and Yorubas ati—-their Itsekiri surrogates now at large in APC–looking for crumbs under the table of their Fulani masters- via Sagay
