FG Commends Villagers for Repelling Boko Haram Attack
The federal government on Thursday commended residents of Kalabalge community in Borno State for repelling an attack by Boko Haram insurgents.
The Coordinator of the Joint Information Centre on Chibok girls, Mike Omeri, said that the residents’ actions showed that citizens are brazing to the antics of the insurgents.
Mr. Omeri also encouraged other communities to emulate this act by the people of Kalabalge.
He also assured Nigerians that the over 250 schoolgirls who were kidnapped from their dormitory in a Government Secondary School Chibok, Borno State, will be rescued.
Mr. Omeri said that Nigeria is working in synergy with the international community to reunite the girls with their families.
The Kalabalge villagers on Tuesday repelled a Boko Haram attack killing about 100 of the insurgents and arresting about 10 of them.
The insurgents had repeatedly attempted to attack Kalabalge, an agro-nomad community near the Cameroon borders, but failed to gain entry into the village on each attempt.
Residents said the villagers had made security preparations around the village that made it impossible for the Boko Haram insurgents to succeed. The village also serves as the headquarters of Kalabalge Local Government Area of Borno.
The residents of Kalabalge also recovered vehicles and ammunition from the insurgents.
