Eight members of the Boko Haram sect met their untimely demise after they prepared to ambush a village in Chibok but were intercepted by viigilantes who had laid an ambush of their own.
The Boko Haram gunmen snuck up on dwellers of Kwarangilam village of Chibok local government whilst the were still sleeping with intention of carrying out another massacre, but were schocked to encounter the waiting bullets of vigilantes.
State chairman of Nigeria Vigilante Group, Adamsi Tar, and the spokesman of the group, Muhammed Gava told Leadership that they arrested one of the vigilantes alive and handed him over to the army.
“It was a successful operation that we had in Chibok local government today (yesterday) Monday. When the attackers came at about 3am, our men were already hinted and had been waiting all nights to confront them.
“When they started by setting fire on the houses, our men began to shoot from their hideouts and they have been able to kill eight of them using our local dane guns. The gunmen were confused because they did not know from which direction the firing was coming; and when they sensed more danger, they decided to flee; but our men were able to arrest one of the attackers alive and shot dead eight others.”
The vigilantes said the militants managed to burn a few buildings including their lodge and they lost their uniforms as a result.
