Speaking to newsmen, leader of Chibok Girls’ Parents Association, Yakubu Nkenki, said the town was in mourning mood when he visited to commiserate with the community, calling on federal government to do more to protect soft targets.
“The situation is pathetic, the village has been thrown into mourning after losing three able bodied men. They told me that the gunmen looted 24 motorcycles from the village and abducted two women who were later released.
“While we call on the public to cooperate with the military, we are also appealing to the government for improved security in our villages because the more villages are being attacked, the more bigger towns are exposed”, he said.

She added that the insurgents carted away more than 20 motorcycles and other valuables from houses during the night attack.
