According to Abdullahi Kaura AbubakarBBC Africa, Abuja reported that

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

The militants slaughtered at least eight 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.

Others sources said the militants were still in control of Malam Fatori town, on the Nigeria-Niger border.
Last Sunday, Nigerian troops recaptured the town from the jihadists. However, the militants reinforced their ranks and regained control of the town.

But Colonel Kukasheka Usman who is the spokesperson of the army on Tuesday, September 27, he said although there was a gun fight between troops and terrorists, there was no hoisting of flag.

An army statement said that the militant sect attacked a convoy late on September 25, near Bama, 70 km southeast of Maiduguri, the state’s capital causing the deaths of an army officer, three soldiers, and three attackers.
