… Killed 20 farmers, 9 others
BOKO HARAM insurgents on Wednesday evening launched attack on a military base in Goniri town, Gujba local government area of Yobe state, locals and security sources have confirmed.
According to Daily Trust report, the attackers stormed the town around 6:00pm, in gun trucks and headed directly to the military location.
“I cannot tell the number of gun trucks they drove in to carry out the attack but I saw many”, a resident who escaped the area said.
He said the insurgents engaged the military in gun dual for over two hours before the gunfire subsided.
“There is no sound of gunshot and the town is silent,” he said.
Meanwhile the insurgents killed 29 people following two attacks in Borno State on Monday.
The Punch Newspaper reported that the insurgents slaughtered 20 farmers in Ngamgam village, Mobbar Local Government Area of the state.
Ngamgam is about 50 kilometres from Damasak, which is at the border between Nigeria and Niger Republic.
A security source told our correspondent that the attack forced the majority of the people to flee Ngamgam to Damasak.
The source said, “We got information that suspected members of the terrorist group attacked Ngamgam settlement and killed 20 farmers on their farms.”
The insurgents were alleged to have attacked Kaula village in Guzamala LGA of the troubled state, killing nine persons and carting away food and livestock.
A leader of the Civilian Joint Task Force in the state, Abba-Aji Kalli, told our correspondent on the telephone that they had been informed about the killing of nine people in Kaula.
