# Jihadists have killed at least 15 people in New Year’s Day attacks on two villages near the town of Chibok in northeast Nigeria’s Borno State. AFP reports Jihadist fighters in trucks fitted with machine guns and on motorcycles stormed into Gatamarwa and Tsiha villages on Monday, killing residents and burning homes after looting food supplies. It was not clear which group was behind the attacks, but both Boko Haram and rival Islamic State West Africa Province carry out raids in the area.
