Metro Boko Haram Terrorists Kill One in Fresh Yobe Attack



Boko Haram militants invaded Babangida town, Tarmowa local government area in Yobe state, killing one person early hour of Sunday morning, Dailytrust reports.

The terrorists stormed the town at about 1.45am in Hilux vans and motorcycles which is believed by residents to be a reprisal attack.

Daily Trust gathered that the invaders were forced to take a retreat after a gun duel by the soldiers who were on guard.


A resident of the town, Sulaiman Khalil said that the assailants parked their vehicles at the outskirt and sneaked into town on foots and motorcycles.

"Fortunately enough, the security forces were fully aware of their plan. They engaged them in serious gun battle that lasted for hours before the military thwarted their attack plan,” he said.

"But an old man was killed by the insurgents outside his thatch tent before they burnt down the shed; his neighbours said he was trying to escape when the militants saw him."

A fleeing resident told Daily Trust that there were apprehensions of possible attack on the town the day before as “the boys (militants) were sighted at Sassawa Saturday afternoon. We alerted security operatives but nothing was done."
