Armed men suspected to be members of the Boko Haram sect struck again in Borno State late on Saturday. Terror was unleashed on the town of Damboa, about 87 kilometers from Maiduguri as the terrorists left the council headquarters, a fire station and about 20 other buildings on fire. Witnesses disclosed that the men came in about four different vehicles and they chanted “Allah Akbar” as they hurled explosives into the Local Government secretariat.
About three people died in the incident, including a fire service officer and two security men who were trying to put out the fire.
Another attack was also launched on a police station in Fika, Yobe State around 4.30 am on Sunday. Gunmen hurled explosives at a police station and fired gunshots simultaneously. A primary school and some telecommunication masts were also blown up. Two policemen were believed to have died in the Yobe attack.
