Residents Flee Their Villages After Receiving An Impending Letter From Boko Haram

People from Kukawa and Gubio Village in Borno state after recieving a letter from Boko Haram informing them of an impending attack to be carried out in their communities fled their village considering the fact that Boko Haram have attacked other local government areas around Kukawa and Gubio.

A resident of the village, Modu Kaka who spoke with Sahara Reporters, said immediately they received the letter, thousands of residents fled.
"They had attacked other local government areas around us. So when we received threat letters from Boko Haram that they would attack us soon, we all had to flee for our lives. We heard what happened to people in Damasak where a similar threat was made and carried by Boko Haram.” he said

A senior Bono state government official who hails from Gubio, one of the villages reportedly written to, confirmed the mass exodus of the villagers from their villages to the state capital, Maiduguri where some of them have either settled in with relatives or moved into the Internally Displaced Peoples camps.
