LAGOS JANUARY 27TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Suicide bombers on Wednesday killed 15 people in Chibok, Borno State.
Several others were injured in explosions that rocked a town where over 200 school girls were abducted by Boko Haram militants about two years ago.

A resident of the town, Ayuba Alamson, told The Nation that a young boy who was apprehended by the military for suspicious movements detonated a bomb he had around his waist, while the second explosion occurred at a market in the town.
He said, “Two explosions happened in Chibok today. One happened at a checkpoint into Chibok where the military and civilian joint task force were stationed and another occurred at the market which just reopened for people to resume business.
“Military men and some members of the civilian JTF apprehended a young boy for suspicious movement. He later detonated the bomb he had around his waist.
“Several casualties were counted with at least 10 confirmed dead. Right now people are scared and terrified. We are being reminded of how we were attacked last year by Boko Haram and all we have gone through as a community including the abduction of our daughters.”
