Not less than 800 Chibok youths have in the last 6 weeks fled their homes and ran to Lagos, Abuja, Kano and other cities to evade attack by the violent Boko Haram sect.
It was revealed that the sect had embarked on mass abductions of young men as fighters.
Places affected in the Chibok area include Kwada, Ntsiha (A and B), Kwarnglum District, Kwaple village, Kautikari, Kaumutayahi, Chibok main town, Shawa, Tsilari and Nguradina.
The Director of Publicity, Kibaku Area Development Association, Dr. Manasseh Allen, who stated this in a telephone interview on Thursday in Abuja, explained that the fleeing youths were taking up menial jobs in Lagos, Abuja and other places to eke out a living.
Allen, who returned from Chibok last Monday, however, said that there was relative security in the town following the deployment of a detachment of soldiers and policemen, Punch reports.
