On the 1st of November, militants believed to be part of the original Boko Haram sect under the leadership of Abubakar Shekau attacked Takulashi village near Chibok.


The armed men attacked the village. Six gun trucks filed with insurgents entered the village and started shooting.

They killed twelve Christians during the attack and were able to escape, kidnapping multiple women and children. They also burned down many homes and businesses.

According to Rev. Zakariya Musa of the Church of the Brethren in Nigeria (Ekklesiyar Yan’uwa a Nigeria, EYN), nine of the twelve people killed were members of his church. One of the other three was a pastor of the local COCIN church. The final two were vigilantes trying to protect their community members.
