“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”.
