Gunmen suspected to be Boko Haram insurgents on Tuesday evening attacked the Kautikari village in the Chibok local government area of Borno State.

Residents told journalists that sporadic gunshots were heard in different parts of the community for about one hour.

The incident occurred a few hours after the United Nations Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, visited an Internally Displaced Persons (IDP) camp and a rehabilitation centre in Maiduguri, the state capital.
