Armed Boko Haram terrorists suspected to be members of ISWAP group have invaded Piyemi village of Chibok Local Government Area in Borno state wreaking havoc without confrontation, sources have said.

Sources said the insurgents at about 7 pm on Thursday invaded the community and started firing gunshots at civilians and burning residential buildings and shops as they loot livestock and foodstuff. 

Just last week Friday some insurgents attacked Kautikari village and killed four residents after abducting scores of women and children in Chibok.
