Explosions rock Chibok; casualties recorded

Road to Chibok

Two explosions have rocked Chibok, the Borno State community where over 200 school girls were abducted by Boko Haram nearly two years ago.

Reports say the explosions, suspected to be from suicide bombers, killed an unspecified number of people, and injured some others.

The Hausa service of the BBC said one bomber struck at the town’s main market while another went off at a military check point in the early hours of Wednesday.

Chibok has been heavily secured since 2014 when Boko Haram militants carried out a night raid on a government secondary school where they kidnapped over 200 girls.
