More than 40,000 people have been killed and nearly 3 million displaced in a decade of Boko Haram terror activities in the country.

Over five persons have been confirmed dead after some Boko Haram terrorists attacked the Ekklesiyar Yanโ€™uwa a Nigeria Church (Church of the Brethren) at Pemi village in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State.

NoRM gathered that gunmen invaded Debro community, shooting sporadically. The ugly incident had happened on Friday when the attackers were said to have burnt down many houses, cars, and motorcycles in the community.

A source said, the terrorists struck around 6 pm, though information about the incident did not reach the military until 9 pm. They set the church on fire and waited until it burnt down before they left.
