Terrorists attack military base, kill soldier in Yobe


Suspected terrorists on Saturday, March 23, 2024, attacked a military base in Gujba town, Gujba Local Government Area of Yobe State, leaving a soldier dead in the attack.

Confirming the attack on Sunday, the spokesperson of the Yobe State Police Command, DSP Dungus Abdulkarim, said a military patrol vehicle was also torched by the suspected terrorists in the attack which occurred about midnight on Saturday

DSP Abdulkarim said; “The only thing I can confirm to you now is the attack. A soldier was killed, and troops and CJTF engaged the suspected terrorists”.

Reports said that the suspected insurgents who stormed the town midnight, shooting indiscriminately, and subsequently attacking the military base, were later repelled by troops who chased them out into the surrounding bush.

A resident of Gujba, Modu Bahna, while narrating his ordeal, said, “They (suspected terrorists) stormed the town some minutes after midnight, shooting sporadically and the majority of us took to our heels into the surrounding bushes for our dear lives.”

“The attackers did not kill any civilian or loot food or other essential commodities stores,” another source, Dala Bukar, said, adding, “They only attacked the two patrol vehicles in the military base where a soldier was killed.”
