Suspected Boko Haram insurgents on Wednesday night, April 20, attacked Geidam community in Yobe State, killing eleven persons.
It was gathered that the terrorists sneaked into the town at around 9:pm without firing a single shot, and executed their mission and left.
They were said to have parked their motorbikes in a neighbouring community.
According to Daily Trust, the insurgents entered through the eastern part of the town and set Government Science and Technical School Geidam ablaze, killing one person at the school quarters.
A source told the publication that the gunmen also targeted ‘Kwari’, a popular brothel in Geidam, where they slaughtered 10 persons, both men and women.
“They took us by surprise this time around; they entered in silence without firing shots or using vehicles,” a local said.
Upon their entrance, they asked some of the residents to recite verses of the Qur’an before they either allowed them leave or get killed.”
Meanwhile, some residents are currently fleeing the town to avoid being trapped as was the case last year when the insurgents spent days in the community.
