A recent attack by suspected Boko Haram terrorists has resulted in the reported deaths of no fewer than nine people in Buni Gari, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State.
The attack was discovered when a resident named Shettima Dawi went to scout for firewood but did not return home, prompting his relatives and neighbors to search for him in the bush. However, they were subsequently attacked by the suspected insurgents.
“Ten persons have been killed by the suspected insurgents after they went to look for their brother (Shettima Dawi) who left home yesterday (Thursday) to scout for firewood a few kilometers away from Buni Gari but could not return home,” residents told Channels TV.
“Among all of the ten persons that went to the bush to look for Shettima, only one person escaped with some injuries and is receiving treatment, the rest including the first victim, Shettima Dawi were all killed.”
