Residents of the attacked village said the gunmen crept upon them at about 3.30am, while they were still fast asleep. Houses were set ablaze while many, including women and children were injured.

Mallam Ali, resident of Bam, said he and many other lucky villagers managed to flee into the neighboring Miringa town from where he spoke to journalists on phone.

"The Boko Haram terrorists came at about 3.30 in the morning. They gun shots and chanting of 'Allahu akbar woke us up. They asked those that could not escape to gather in the center of the village, and then they separated many of the teenage girls from married women. They set almost the whole town ablaze before leaving with the girls.

"We want the Chief of Army Staff, General Tukur Buaratai, to do something fast because we have been telling the soldiers that the Boko Haram are in some of the villages not far away but the soldiers only went to Mangari village which is some few kilometers away from Buratai befoere they turned back," Ali said.
