Suspected Boko Haram terrorists attack local government area in Yobe state
According to reports some suspected Boko Haram terrorists are currently attacking Geidam local government area of Yobe state.
The attack is coming a few hours after several key Boko Haram Terrorists/ISWAP leaders were killed in multiple airstrikes conducted by the Air Task Force of Operation Lafiya Dole at Durbada in Borno state.
Anonymous sources in the affected local government confirmed that the insurgents stormed the town through the southern part of Gumsa village firing gunshots sporadically.
One of the sources said people ran helter-skelter, scampering for safety as the attack came at the time that residents were out for their businesses.
Earlier there were reports that the Nigerian Army disclosed that it has killed 105 Boko Haram insurgents in a battle at Buni Gari, Gujba local government of Yobe state.
Col Sagir Musa, the acting director of army public relations, said the attack on the insurgents was carried out on Saturday evening, April 18, by troops of Sector 2, Operation Lafiya Dole, led by their commander, Brig Gen Lawrence Araba.
