Two bomb blasts have reportedly killed 8 persons at the spot and injured 30 others in the town of Chibok, where over 200 female students were abducted in their school dormitories at the Government Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State on April 14, 2014. Reports however said the number of those who died from the attack has increased to 14.
According to a party chairman in Chibok, Lawan Pogu, two female suicide bombers detonated their bombs inside Chibok market, which has been shut down since the incident of the abduction of Chibok school girls.
Pogu said, “The market was only open today, and the suicide bombers hit their target at exactly12:54 pm. Eight people died at the spot while over 30 were rushed to the General Hospital, Uba in Askira Local Government with two of the victims in critical condition.”
Another resident of Chibok, Mallum Chibok confirmed that despite the presence of security men in the area, the Boko Haram insurgents succeeded in attacking the area, an indication that the terrorists are everywhere.
According to him, they kicked again at the reopening of the Chibok market but some people said that normalcy has returned. His words: “I cannot understand the reason why government is insisting that normalcy has returned when you cannot go to Chibok from Maiduguri through Damboa. The road has remained shut because Boko Haram insurgents are still operating 21 kilometres away from Maiduguri.
“Today, they opened the market and we lost eight people at a spot with over 30 hospitalized. From what we have been told, now as we speak some of the people who were taken to the hospital gave up as soon as they reached the hospital in Uba. This is according to the text message I just received. Look at it, they said another six died bringing the number to 14. Since the attack I have received more than 100 calls and more calls and text messages are coming in. This is very unfortunate and unbelievable. It is sad for us,” Chibok said.
