Kautukari, a village in the Chibok Local Government Area of Borno State, has been reportedly attacked on Tuesday by terrorists of the Islamic State of West Africa Province, ISWAP.
Local officials in Chibok, who spoke in anonymity, confirmed to the Cable that gunshots were heard around Kautikari at about 6:00 pm on Tuesday.
The terrorists reportedly stormed the community at about 6 pm, shooting randomly as they raided houses.
