Vigilantes in the village disclosed that the insurgents attacked people while on bicycles in flash point around 10 pm on Friday, opening fire on residents and torching their homes.

"The gunmen killed 14 people and burnt the whole village before they fled. Not a single house was spared in the arson," Mustapha Karimbe, a civilian assisting the military in fighting Boko Haram told AFP.

It was further gathered that hundreds of Kimba residents fled to Biu nearby, where they were put up in a refugee camp already brimming with people running from Boko Haram.
