It was earlier reported  that an attack was carried out by men suspected to be Boko Haram on bicycles in Kwamjilari village, about 30 kilometres (19 miles) east of the town of Chibok, in Borno state on Sunday, September 18, immediately after morning service.

Luka Damina, from nearby Kautikeri village said:

“Some of the worshippers remained around the church and the gunmen opened fire and eight men died,”

“Unknown to the residents, the gunmen had stationed some of their comrades on the road leading out of the village and they shot anyone who tried to flee.
“Many people ran into the bush with gunshot wounds. But so far we can only confirm eight deaths.”
