Bomb blast hits Chibok

The bombing was carried out by two suicide bombers who attacked the town today, January 27, 2016.

 

An explosion has occurred in Chibok, Borno State, emerging reports say.

Many people are said to have been killed while several others were injured in the attack.

Reports of the incident are still sketchy and a definite casualty figure is yet to emerge.

Chibok is the same town from which over 200 girls were abducted in April 2014 giving rise to global outrage and the Bring Back Our Girls movement.

Most of the girls still remain in the captivity after the kidnapping which was carried out by Boko Haram.

This sect is also believed to be responsible for the bombing. Story developing.
