 Suspected Boko Haram Insurgents Attack Yobe Community Again

Suspected gunmen have again reportedly attacked Kanamma, Headquarter of Yunusari Local Government Council of Yobe State.

This comes barely one week after suspected Boko Haram insurgents invaded the Geidam community, displacing over 6,000 residents, the Thursday night.

Spokesman of the Nigeria Police Force in the State, ASP Dungus Abdulkarim, who confirmed this to Journalists added that the incident happened on the outskirts of the community on Thursday night, April 29, 2021.

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

Kanamma which shares a border with the Niger Republic and 34 kilometers away from Geidam, was the community where suspected Boko Haram elements were first sighted in 2004 before they moved to Maiduguri, the Borno State capital, and started their deadly attacks in 2009.
