Brief – Three people were killed and several houses burnt down in the early hours of Monday, October 3, by suspected Jamā’at Ahl as-Sunnah lid-Da’way Wa’l-Jihād (JAS) in an attack on Njilang village in the Chibok Local Government Area.

Rachel Daniel, a resident of the village, told RNI that she and others were woken at about 2am by the sound of gunfire. “The villagers started running for their lives. That was when the three people were killed; a shoemaker and two other innocent people.”

She said some people who saw the insurgents claimed they were “mostly white and ebony in complexion and they were wearing military uniforms”.

“I don’t know what we did to Boko Haram [the JAS] insurgents; they have abducted our children [Chibok girls’ abduction in 2014]; they killed our husbands and made us widows; they stopped us from farming and business activities. Is that not enough? Why are Boko Haram still killing us and bringing on havoc on our community?”
