Details of the attack were still sketchy, neither number of the casualty nor level of destruction were ascertained from either the security agents or residents of the village.

It would be recalled that on April 14, 2014, 276 schoolgirls were abducted by gunmen from Government Girls Secondary School (GGSC), Chibok.

Some of them had fled from captivity themselves while government had negotiated the release of many of them, but more than one hundred girls are still missing.
