The Boko Haram insurgents have taken over Chibok, a town in Borno State, North Eastern Nigeria, where it adopted over 300 schools girls six months ago.
The insurgents reportedly seized the town which is also a local government headquarters, raided the community and established its reign of terror even as some Christian youths managed to escape to the neighbouring town in the State on Thursday.
It is unclear whether security personnel around the town put up resistance. Also, figure of casualties is yet to be confirmed.
Chibok became the centre of international attention last April after Boko Haram fighters stormed the town and took away nearly 300 female students from a government secondary school in the town.
Six month after, majority of the girls remain in captivity and many more have since been kidnapped.
Officials reports have it that about 57 either escaped with some abandoned during encounter with military.
Similarly, State government confirmed Thursday that local vigilante working with the military re-captured Mubi town, an occupied town in Adamawa State, which has been under their control for about two weeks ago.
