Gujba town of Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State came under Boko Haram’s attack on Saturday January 9, two days after the insurgents attacked the Geidam community in the state where they burnt down shops and carted away drugs in the hospital.
An eyewitness who spoke to Channels Television, Adamu Bura said the terrorists first laid ambush to a military patrol vehicle on the highway and later stormed the village setting some structures ablaze.
“They laid ambush to a military vehicle then later proceeded to the Gujba town. We have fled to the bush but we can see smoke everywhere.”
Yobe police spokesperson, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim confirmed the attack but said the number of casualties is still unclear.
