Information reaching PREMIUM TIMES indicate that armed gunmen suspected to be members of the Boko Haram are currently attacking Kuburvwa Village.

The village is 10 km from Chibok Town, where over 200 female students were kidnapped in Borno in April 2014.

According to an official of the Vigilante Group of Nigeria in Borno State, Abbas Gava, who spoke to PREMIUM TIMES on phone from Maiduguri, the gunmen invaded the agrarian village at about 6.30 p.m.

The shot sporadically forcing residents to flee into surrounding bushes.

“As I am speaking to you now the gunmen are setting every house on fire after chasing the villagers away”, Mr. Gava, the spokesman of the Vigilante Group, said.

“From the information we have received from our operatives in Chibok and Kautikari, the number of casualty cannot be ascertained for now because the Boko Haram insurgents are still in the village”.

    Bingo Buhari once said 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 government in the North East. So Buhari went to the World Bank, just days after he was imposed on Nigerians by the CIA to borrrow 2.1b–Even when told the war was not over yet with Boko Haram Fulani fighters in the North East–he went ahead to appoint the biggest 419ner on earth Danjuma another of his retired Military friend to supervise the disbursement of the 2.1b to the Fulani contractors-appointed by the Apes in APC-

    Alhaji Bingo Buhari of Mali, later asked the Federal Government under Jonathan to stop the clampdown on Boko Haram insurgents, saying Niger Delta Militants were never killed or properties belonging to them destroyed by Jonathan. But today the Niger Delta is the most Militarized zone in the world-Sadly we now have the father of Tompolo murdered in cold blood by the Fulani and Yoruba soldiers of occupation among other Ijaw Youths.

    Buhari who aired his satanic views against the Niger delta people on a Liberty Radio programme, Guest of the Week b4 he was installed as President by the Obama government, accused the government of Jonathan–then of killing and destroying houses belonging to Boko Haram members while the Niger Delta militants under Tompolo get special treatment. But now more Ijaws have been killed by the Fulani ati Yoruba soldiers from Mali and Togo than any can imagine.———-Separation is the answer–not the rule of the Fulanis and Yorubas ati—-their Ibo surrogates now at large in APC being settled quietly to forget Kanu in the gulag of Buhari—

    The time for the army to finally overthrow the government of Buhari again for the second time–period—-The man is a daft–Only God know what he did in the army as an Officer–without qualification–For the man like every Fulani person from Mali—-that ruled Nigeria-from the Sudan-has become so useless with his daily lies about Boko haram–that there is an urgent need for his government to be sacked–now——————–Today Shekau is dead–the next day he resurrects again from the dead—-by the Sultan of Sokoto and Emir of Kano——-Then the same dead Shekau begins to kill soldiers-like rats—The militants in the Niger delta are yet to fire a shot to kill one Nigerian soldier–So far the soldiers who have died in the creeks-of the Niger delta-died from boat mishaps—Separation is the main issues here–Since we cannot continue to waste our energy and crude resources over the fight with Boko haram–This war with the Fulnis in boko haram has been going on for over 5 years—–enough is enough-Time for Buhari to go————————-is now!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Why wait for the army? You can also overthrow Buhari by simply sipping on your concentrated ogogorogo, plus all the insults and blackmail that is your trade mark. Confused human being.

      you be mumu… you should reread your comment and ask yourself if you are making any sense

  • Galantman

    I’m schocked that instead of the vigilante to inform the military , he is busy calling premium times. When did premium times becomes an armed newspapers.? This is pure blackmail and sabotage . I also expect premium times to inform the military or at least find out if they are aware of the attack before rushing to press. The press has a vital role to play in security matters and ought to be seen as patriotic


      If the report may be denied, the villagers now prefer to call press. IT’S ALL PART OF THE TECHNICAL DEFEAT

      So you think the military is unaware of the attack? There’s been a lot of denials hence the call to Premium Times is a welcome development if only to expose their cover up.
