Suspected Boko Haram insurgents attack another Yobe community

Boko Haram

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 the 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.
