Road to Chibok

The Bring Back Our Girls group, BBOG, has released the names of individuals who were killed and those injured during Wednesday’s suicide bomb attacks in Chibok, Borno State.

Two suicide bombers suspected, to be female, on January 27 detonated their explosive devices at the main market, as well as at a military check point in Chibok town.

Chibok is the town where over 200 teenage girls were kidnapped from their school dormitory over a year ago by the Boko Haram.

The BBOG has since been engaged in creating awareness and seeking for the return of the girls from their captives.
The group in a statement by its spokesperson, Sesugh Akume, on Sunday said 15 people were killed, while 49 others were injured in the January 27 attacks.

The movement also said one soldier is among the dead victims.

“Our sources in Chibok have relayed the names and identities of all the victims: 15 deaths (including that of soldier of the Nigerian army). Some died on the spot, others eventually; and 49 injured, some at critical stages,” the group said.

“Two of the victims of the attacks are cousins of Aishatu Musa, one our 219 missing Chibok girls. Both are daughters of Mutah Adamu Ntikawar. One died on the spot, the other is in a critical condition presently.”
