Suspected Boko Haram insurgents attack another Yobe community

Suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Thursday night, April 29 reportedly attacked Kanamma, headquarter of Yunusari Local Government Council of Yobe State, barely a week after they invaded Geidam community and displaced over 6,000 residents.

 

Spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force in the state, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim told Channels Television in a telephone conversation that the incident happened on the outskirts of the community.

 

Abdulkarim said;

 

“As a matter of fact, Boko Haram insurgents attacked an outskirt of Kanamma Thursday night, unfortunately, we have lost contact with our people there due to the absence of a mobile network in the area, we will update you when we reach out to them.”

 

A local source further revealed that upon hearing gunshots around the military base, the residents fled to the bush for safety.
