Authorities in Chad ordered a precautionary evacuation of a village near Niger after Boko Haram’s deadly attack.

At least 3,000 villagers have been forced to leave their homes in the Lake Chad region after a Boko Haram attack on a village near Chad’s border with Niger left at least 18 people dead.

Lake Chad governor, Mohammed Aba Salah, told Al Jazeera on Sunday that the fighters also kidnapped 10 women.

“Boko Haram fighters slit the throats of two [people] and shot the other 16,” he said. “One of the 10 women abducted by Boko Haram managed to escape and return home.”

Aba Salah also said that the evacuation following the attack was “a precautionary measure”.

Boko Haram is in control of the area across Lake Chad’s borders with both Niger and Nigeria, he said.
