The extremist Boko Haram sect is currently attacking Bajoga town of Gombe state, residents have said.
According to eye witness accounts, sounds of gunshots and explosion rented the air across the length and breadth of the rusty town.
“Sound of explosion and gunshots woke us up from sleep and we had to hurriedly leave to the outskirts of town where I am calling you from,” said our source.
Bajoga hosts the Ashaka cement plant, and the Boko Haram sect carried out a similar raid on the plant last month during which they reportedly carted away four Toyota Hilux vans packed with explosives.
The spokesperson of the Gombe State Command of the Nigerian Police could not be reached for comments at this time
