Suspected Boko Haram gunmen kidnapped nine women and killed 11 other people on Sunday night during a raid on the northeast Nigerian village of Takulashi of Chibok in Borno State some residents said.
Details of the attack on the remote village further revealed that 11 persons might have been killed in the attack as against the seven members of the Civilian Joint Task Force earlier reported to have been killed in Sunday’s siege.
Residents told journalists on Monday the insurgents stormed the village on motorcycles and shot sporadically at mourners at a funeral in the community.
They later selected nine women and took them away.
However, the spokesman of the state police command, Okon Edet, declined comment on the incident.
He said: “You very well know that any issue outside the metropolis is under the control of the military. The entire state is still under a state of emergency.”
Over 200 students were abducted by Boko Haram fighters from their college in the community in April 2014.
