Following attack by Boko Haram insurgents on some villages in Borno State, Lalai Nkeki, father of Kauna, one of the abducted Chibok girls has been killed.
According to TheCable, the tragedy was confirmed by Hosea Tsambido, chairman of the Chibok community in Abuja, despite Nigeria’s army report that no lives were lost.
Tsambido reportedly said: “Kauna’s father, Mr Lalai Nkeki, was killed in an attack two days at Kubumbalah, near Chibok two days by Boko Haram. Kauna is one of the Chibok girls.”
Boko Haram has stepped up attacks in the northeast lately, but the federal government insists that the sect has been technically defeated.
