Chibok, the Borno State community where over 200 school girls were abducted by Boko Haram nearly two years ago, has been hit by two bomb blasts
Reports say two explosions suspected to be from suicide bombers, rocked the town on Wednesday, killing an unspecified number of people.
The Hausa service of the BBC reports that one bomber struck at the town’s main market while another explosion went off at a military check point in the early hours of Wednesday.
Chibok has been heavily secured since 2014 when Boko Haram militants carried out a night raid on a government secondary school where they kidnapped over 200 girls.
The girls are still in Boko Haram captivity in spite of the global outrage that trailed their abduction.
