Just within 24 hours after Boko Haram reportedly captured Chibok town in Borno state, Nigerian soldiers from the 7th Division of the Nigerian army yesterday reclaimed the community after a long gun battle.
An indigene of Chibok  said a large deployment of soldiers were seen moving in from the direction of Damboa on Saturday morning and engaged members of the sect in a gun battle, eventually overpowering them, “We saw large number of trucks filled with uniformed personnel moving towards Chibok; initially, we were scared but later realised they were soldiers as they did not harass us like the Boko-Haram gunmen usually do”
A top military officer who spoke anonymously said “We have taken back Chibok town from the insurgents after few hours of engagement with them. We have since sent them parking from the town; it is now safe for people to return to their homes”.
