Suspected members of the Boko Haram sect Monday invaded Mifa community in Chibok Local Government Area of Borno state, killing an unidentified Islamic scholar.
According to eyewitnesses, the incident occurred around 9: 30 pm when about 30 Boko Haram terrorists entered the village shooting repeatedly.
The Nation reports that the timely intervention of soldiers stationed in Chibok prevented the terrorists from causing further havoc.
Residents of the community have since deserted their homes for fear of being attacked by the terror squad.
“You know this is getting too much, Chibok is surrounded by bush and the borders are not well patrolled.
“We cannot sleep well in Chibok because of dear and that is why we want the soldiers to resume their mobile patrol,” one resident told the newspaper.
