Suspected members of Boko Haram Tuesday evening attacked Geidam, a town in Yobe State.

The attack was still on at press time, at about 6:30 p.m.

The gunshots by the insurgents caused many residents to panic and flee into the bush while others hid in their houses.

A resident, who managed to speak with our Reporter in a terrified voice, said the gunshots were massive.

“The gunshot outside is so much. I can’t talk now please,” the Geidam resident said.

The State police Public Relation Officer, Abdulkarim Dungus, told PREMIUM TIMES that he heard the Divisional Police Officer of Geidam firing from his gun when he tried to contact him.

“I called my DPO in Geidam and he is also under fire. I could hear the gunshot from him. He has promised to call back,” Mr Dungus, an assistant superintendent of police, said.

  1. There should be enough security personnel from all the corners of the town because the insurgents snik into the town while the security personnel try to secure their territory in order to avoid losing their machinery to the insurgents. We also urged federal government to respond to their demand by providing them with logistics and other things to cater for the life and property of geidam residents. And also, quick response from airmen when such things occurred.
