JUST IN: Gaidam under Boko Haram attack

Barely one hour to the commencement of 2019 Presidential and National Assembly elections, Gaidam town in Yobe state is currently under Boko Haram attack.

Daily Trust gathered that the attackers were sighted at Maladari, a village located 6km to Gaidam around 3:00am.

“They arrived Gaidam around 6:15am and began shooting sporadically.

“Residents including traditional rulers had fled the town. I’m currently taking refuge at Bukarti, the state governor’s village but we were told that the attackers are on their way here,” a resident who simply gave his name as Muhammad said.

He said that many residents that fled the town are in the bush with their wives and children without direction. “We are suffering, we don’t know what to do,” he added.

Gaidam town had in recent times recorded many attacks that left many soldiers and the insurgents dead.
