43 Dead After Boko Haram Attacks Gubio Town in Borno State

At least 43 people have been reported dead after Boko Haram attacked Gubio town in Borno State.

Punch reports that the terrorists’ invasion lasted for 5 hours and that a convoy of around 50 insurgents stormed the town.

Although the incident occurred on Saturday, news sources are only just reporting it today.

Sources say details of such attacks often take a number of days to surface outside of the affected areas due to poor telecommunications in the area.

Eyewitness, Mallam Yusuf Mohammed, told newsmen that over 400 houses were burnt down by the insurgents.

Another eyewitness said, “They came, shooting, threatening to kill everybody. They set fire on many houses, burnt down our peoples’ vehicles and motorcycles. We lost 43 people including two children.”
