About 24 Hours after Boko Haram took over Chibok town and declared it their caliphate, the Nigerian military has reclaimed the town, LEADERSHIP reports.
According to villagers around Chibok town, a large deployment of soldiers were seen moving in from the direction of Damboa on Saturday morning.
Confirming the recent development, a top military officer who spoke anonymously said
“We have taken back Chibok town from the insurgents after some few hours of engagement with them. We have since sent them parking from the town; it is now safe for people to return to their homes”.
