Armed terrorists suspected to be members of the Islamic State of West African Province, ISWAP, on Wednesday evening invaded Gaidam Local Government area of Yobe state and razed down a Technical College in the town.
Twin brothers are victims of the attack. One died on the spot and the other is still responding to treatment at an undisclosed hospital.
This attack which took place at about 9pm is coming barely one year when the town was attacked by terrorists, killing several residents.
Sources revealed that the insurgents came on foot from different directions and wreaked havoc on Wednesday by setting ablaze the Technical college.
Gaidam is the home town of the immediate past governor, now Senator Ibrahim Geidam located north of Yobe state.
Confirming the incident, Executive Chairman of Geidam, Hon Ali Kolo told our Correspondent that the armed insurgents killed invaded some parts of the council with the destruction of properties worth millions of naira.
Although he said, he was in Saudi Arabia for the lesser hajj, it is unfortunate for him to have received a distress call on the renewed attack, even as he said, details on casualty are still sketchy.
“Based on the information at my disposal, Boko Haram has so far killed, invaded Gaidam and razed down some structures including Technical College when I am in Saudi Arabia for the lesser hajj.
“I also gathered that twin brothers were among victims of the casualty.”
“Right now, I am making frantic efforts to get in touch with relevant security agencies, but there is no concrete evidence as to whether the attack has been repelled as insinuated.” The Chairman lamented.
