SERIOUSLY? Boko Haram hoists flag in Nigeria again – BBC

Nigeria's militant Islamist group Boko Haram has hoisted its flag in three villages in north-east after over-running them yesterday, a security source has said.

The militants slaughtered at least 8 people, including a village elder, during the attack, the security source and residents said.

The villages - Kubirivour, Boftari and Kuburmbalah - are near Chibok town, from where the militants captured more than 200 schoolgirls in 2014.

Sources said the militants were still in control of Malam Fatori town, on the Nigeria-Niger border.

On Sunday, Nigerian troops recaptured the town from the jihadists. However, the militants reinforced their ranks and regained control of the town.
