The Nigerian army has retaken Chibok after it fell to Boko Haram militants on 13 November.
A local official told Al Jazeera that vigilantes joined forces with the army to push back Boko Haram militants two days after their attack, but added that the town is still not safe for residents to return.
“At the moment Boko Haram are out of town,” but, the official added, that they “don’t know what will happen next.”
Thousands of Chibok residents fled to the safety of the garrison town of Damboa, 22 miles to the north.
