Nigerian Army confirms Boko Haram attack near Chibok

The Nigeria Army has confirmed an attack by suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Kuburvwa village of Chibok local government areas of Borno on Monday.
It said the attack was carried out by a group of “hungry” Boko Haram gunmen that were out to scavenge for food.
The spokesperson for the army, Sani Usman, said in a statement on Tuesday that the attacks did not lead to any loss of life, and that it was repelled.
The insurgents, according to local vigilante operatives, set houses ablaze after villagers fled their homes.
Mr. Usman said in a statement Tuesday that more villages were also attacked by the gunmen. He however said the attackers were repelled by the troops deployed in the area.
BBC Hausa reported that the insurgents had hoisted their flags in the attacked communities.
