Gashua is located 187 kilometres away from Damaturu the state capital and is the hometown of Senate President Ahmed Lawan.

This incident followed a similar one masterminded by suspected Boko Haram insurgents in the Geidam community of the state where nine persons were killed.

It was gathered that the suspected insurgents came by foot and moved straight to a drinking joint located at Kwari ward, slaughtered nine persons, and injured two others.

The locals further explained the attackers took the residents and the military base at Geidam unaware as there was no gun battle. According to their accounts, the terrorists silently sneaked into the town, executed their mission, and left.
